HURRICANES AGREE TO TERMS WITH RAY WHITNEY

Two-time All-Star has topped 20-goal mark five times

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have agreed to terms with left wing Ray Whitney on a two-year contract. As per club policy, further terms of the deal were not released.

“I am very excited with the addition of Ray, who is a skilled forward who will add more speed and offense to our team,” said Rutherford.

Whitney, 33, played with the Detroit Red Wings during the 2003-04 season, totaling 14 goals and 29 assists (43 points) in 67 regular-season games. Prior to his one-year stint in Detroit, Whitney played two full seasons with Columbus, scoring 45 goals and registering 92 assists (137 points) in 148 games. Whitney has topped 60 points in five of his last seven seasons, including a 71-point output (29g, 42a) in 1999-2000 with Florida.

San Jose selected the Fort Saskatchewan, Alb., native in the first round, 23rd overall, in the first round of the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. Since turning professional, Whitney (5’ 10”, 175 lbs.) has totaled 205 goals and 330 assists (535 points) in 700 regular-season NHL games for San Jose, Edmonton, Florida, Columbus and Detroit. He has scored more than 20 goals in a season five times in his career, setting a career-high with 33 in 1997-98 with Edmonton and Florida. Whitney is a two-time NHL All-Star, selected to participate in 2000 and 2003.
