FORMER ASSOCIATED PRESS EDITOR DAVID DROSCHAK TO SERVE AS LEAD WRITER FOR CAROLINAHURRICANES.COM
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have hired former Associated Press Sports Editor David Droschak to serve as lead writer for the team’s official website, CarolinaHurricanes.com. Droschak, who spent 21 years covering sports in North Carolina, will cover the team for the website starting immediately.

"David brings loads of experience and knowledge to our website," said Rutherford. "His is one of the most respected names among the sports media in the Triangle and he brings instant credibility to CarolinaHurricanes.com."

Droschak will cover all of the team’s home games, as well as providing regular analysis and feature stories for CarolinaHurricanes.com, the top source of news and information about the Hurricanes. Droschak is the only writer in the Triangle to have covered the Carolina Hurricanes every season since the organization moved to North Carolina. He was named the North Carolina sportswriter of the year in 2003 and retired from The Associated Press after 21 years to form the Raleigh-based public relations firm Hughes-Droschak Communications. Droschak, 44, wrote more than 15,000 stories during his two-decade career with the largest news gathering organization in the world, including Carolina’s thrilling run to the Stanley Cup finals in 2002.

Droschak grew up in Penn Hills, Pa., a suburb of Pittsburgh, and was an avid hockey fan. He followed the Pittsburgh Penguins as a kid, watching Hurricanes General Manager Jim Rutherford as a goalie in the early 1970s. Droschak has one son, Preston (12), and lives in Apex.
