RALEIGH, N.C. (Aug. 10, 2004) – Jason Karmanos, Vice President / Assistant General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forwards Colin Forbes and Gordie Dwyer on one-year, two-way contracts. As per club policy, no other terms were announced.

“Colin and Gordie add depth to our system,� said Karmanos. “Both have considerable NHL experience, and will help our organization with their skill and physical play during the course of the season.�

Forbes, 28, played in 69 games with the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League in 2003-04. He led the team with 32 assists and 48 points, and ranked tied for third with 16 goals. He also played in two NHL games with the Washington Capitals during a mid-season recall. Since being drafted by Philadelphia in the seventh round, 166th overall, in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, Forbes (6’ 3�, 205 lbs.) has played in 302 NHL games with Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, the New York Rangers, Ottawa and Washington, notching 33 goals and 28 assists (61 points) while accumulating 211 penalty minutes.
