HURRICANES RENEW AFFILIATION WITH LOWELL

RALEIGH, N.C. (April 26, 2005)

Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has renewed its affiliation agreement with the Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League (AHL) through the 2005-06 season.

The Colorado Avalanche will also send their top prospects to Lowell as part of the one-year agreement. Next season will mark the fifth consecutive year that the Hurricanes have used Lowell as their top minor league affiliate. Carolina has shared the affiliation with the Calgary Flames for the past two seasons. Colorado was previously affiliated with the Hershey Bears of the AHL.

The Lock Monsters play Game 4 of their first-round playoff series against the Hartford Wolf Pack tonight at Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Mass., at 7 p.m. The Lock Monsters currently trail Hartford in the best-of-seven series, 2-1. Lowell was 20 games over .500 during the regular season under head coach Tom Rowe. Eric Staal led the team in scoring for 2004-05, and set new Lock Monsters franchise records in points (77) and assists (51) in a season. Staal also led the AHL in shorthanded goals (7) and plus/minus (+37). Hurricanes 2002 first-round pick Cam Ward was fourth in the AHL this season in goals-against average (1.99) and first in save percentage (.937). Ward was named to the AHL’s 2004-05 All-Rookie team, and his goals-against average, save percentage and wins (26) totals set new Lowell single-season records.
