\u2018CANES WRAP UP ACTIVE DAY AT NHL ENTRY DRAFT
RALEIGH, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes entered Saturday’s NHL Entry Draft in Ottawa armed with 10 picks, including the third overall choice that they used to select the draft’s top-rated defenseman Jack Johnson. By the end of Saturday’s draft, the Hurricanes had added 10 new players to the organization either via the draft or trade.

Johnson played the 2004-05 season with the United States National Under-18 Development team, and posted 14 goals and 27 assists (41 points) in 42 games, while accumulating 170 penalty minutes. Also in 2004-2005, Johnson helped the United States to championships at the Five Nations Tournament, Compuware Four Nations Cup and the 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation World Under-18 Championships. In August, Johnson will be one of 43 players to attend the United States’ evaluation camp for the 2006 IIHF World Junior Championships.

The Hurricanes played a part in what was arguably the biggest trade to occur on draft day when they sent forward Jeff O’Neill to Toronto for a conditional pick in 2006. After making its second- and third-round selections, Carolina made another move, sending the 101st pick in this year’s draft to Columbus in exchange for defenseman Derrick Walser and a fourth-round pick in the 2006 draft.

In the second round, the Hurricanes used the 58th overall pick on University of Minnesota defenseman Nathan Hagemo. Hagemo, 18, played in 25 games for the Golden Gophers during his freshman season, scoring two goals and adding seven assists (9 points) as Minnesota finished tied for third in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings.

Having traded two of its three third-round selections on Friday, Carolina used its lone remaining third-round choice on Saskatoon Blades (WHL) centerman Joe Barnes. The Winnipeg, Man., native notched 30 goals and 32 assists in 2004-05, his third full season of major-junior hockey. In the fourth round, Carolina selected defenseman Jakub Vojta with the 94th overall selection. Vojta played in 38 games with Sparta of the Czech junior league in 2004-05, scoring two goals and adding seven assists (9 points). Later in the fourth round, the Hurricanes picked forward Ondrej Otcenas with the 123rd overall pick. Otcenas scored 33 points (11g, 22a) in 45 games with Trencin of the Slovakian junior league in 2004-05, and was the leading forward with 10 points (6g, 4a) on Slovakia’s team at the IIHF Under-18 World Junior Championships.

Carolina entered the fifth round with two picks and used the 145th overall choice on defenseman Timothy Kunes. Kunes played the 2004-05 season with the New England Junior Falcons, scoring 12 goals and adding 28 assists (40 points) in 50 games. Later in the fifth round, the Hurricanes selected Finnish defenseman Risto Korhonen with the 159th pick. Carolina rounded out the draft by taking Chicoutimi Sagueneens (QMJHL) centerman Nicolas Blanchard in the sixth round (192nd overall) and U.S. National Team Development Program defenseman Kyle Lawson (198th overall).
