HURRICANES AGREE TO TERMS WITH CRAIG KOWALSKI

Goaltender played four years at Northern Michigan

RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 6, 2004) – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Craig Kowalski on a two-year entry-level contract. As per club policy, no other terms were announced.

“Craig had a very good collegiate career at Northern Michigan,� said Karmanos. “We look forward to watching his game mature at the professional level this season.�

Kowalski, 23, played in 37 games with Northern Michigan University of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) in 2003-04, finishing with a 17-14-4 record. The Warren, Mich., native posted a 2.71 goals-against average and four shutouts while maintaining a .918 save percentage despite facing the second most shots of any CCHA goaltender. He was named CCHA Defensive Player of the Week twice during his senior season.

The Hurricanes drafted Kowalski (5’ 10�, 190 lbs.) in the eighth round, 235th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Kowalski turns professional following a four-year, 130-game career at Northern Michigan where he posted a 68-49-12 record and a 2.64 goals-against average. He received CCHA Defensive Player of the Week honors five times during his career and set a new school record for career shutouts (12).
