HURRICANES ACQUIRE MIKE COMMODORE FROM CALGARY
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have acquired defenseman Mike Commodore from Calgary in exchange for Atlanta’s third-round pick in Saturday’s NHL Entry Draft.

“Our staff got to know Mike really well during his time with Lowell last year,” said Rutherford. “He’s a big, young player that we feel that will be a good addition to our defense.”

Commodore, 25, played all of 2004-05 with the Lowell Lock Monsters, Carolina’s American Hockey League affiliate that it shared with Calgary the past two seasons. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alb., native played in 73 of Lowell’s 80 games in 2004-05 and notched six goals and 29 assists (35 points) to lead all Lock Monsters defensemen in scoring. Commodore finished the season with 175 penalty minutes, second among all Lowell players. Commodore recorded a goal and two assists (3 points) along with 18 penalty minutes in the Lock Monsters’ 11-game postseason run.

Commodore (6’ 4”, 230 lbs.) played in 20 of Calgary’s 26 games in the 2004 playoffs when the Flames eventually fell in seven games to Tampa Bay for the Stanley Cup. During that run, he recorded two assists, a plus-1 plus/minus rating and 19 penalty minutes while skating an average of 11:34 per game. He played in 12 regular season games with the Flames in 2003-04 when he split the season between Calgary and the AHL. Prior to joining Calgary’s organization, Commodore played two seasons in New Jersey’s system, spending time with the Devils and Albany of the American Hockey League. Prior to turning professional, Commodore played three seasons with North Dakota of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association where he was a member of the Fighting Sioux’s 2000 national championship team and won WCHA all-academic team honors during his junior season.

The 2005 NHL Entry Draft will take place Saturday, July 30 in Ottawa. Media in the Triangle market are invited to the RBC Center to watch the draft via satellite and participate in conference calls with Rutherford as the draft progresses. Please call Manager of Media Relations Kyle Hanlin at 919-861-5429 for more details regarding tomorrow’s draft media reception.
