BRENDL, ST. JACQUES ACCEPT QUALIFYING OFFERS
PLAYERS SIGN ONE-YEAR CONTRACTS

RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with right wing Pavel Brendl on a one-year contract that will pay him $899,745 in the NHL or $35,000 in the American Hockey League (AHL). Karmanos also announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Bruno St. Jacques on a one-year contract that will pay him $450,000 in the NHL or $75,000 in the AHL.

Brendl, 24, split last season between four teams, spending the majority of his season with Jokipojat Joensuu in Finland, where he tallied nine goals and 10 assists (19 points) and 48 penalty minutes in 21 games. The Opocno, Czech Republic, native scored three goals in four games with HC Thurgau in Switzerland. Brendl also skated for two teams in the Czech Republic – HC Ocelari Trinec and HC Olomouc. In 2003-04, Brendl scored five goals and earned three assists (8 points) in 18 NHL contests before suffering a fractured collarbone at Toronto on Feb. 23, and missing the season’s final 21 games. He began the season with the Hurricanes’ American Hockey League affiliate Lowell Lock Monsters and notched 17 goals and 16 assists (33 points) in 33 games. Brendl was named to the PlanetUSA team for the AHL All-Star Game, but did not play due to his recall to Carolina.

The New York Rangers drafted Brendl (6’1”, 204 lbs.) in the first round, fourth overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. In three seasons with Calgary of the Western Hockey League prior to turning professional, he notched 172 goals, 148 assists (320 points) in 178 regular-season games, and led the WHL in goal-scoring twice. In 1998-99, he was named Canadian Major Junior Rookie of the Year and led Calgary to the Memorial Cup finals.

St. Jacques, 24, notched two goals and 12 assists (14 points) and 60 penalty minutes in 68 games with Lowell (AHL) in 2004-05. He had five points (1g, 4a) in 11 playoff games for the Lock Monsters. The Montreal native played in 35 games with Carolina in 2003-04 after making the team out of training camp. Philadelphia drafted St. Jacques (6’2’’, 204 lbs.) in the ninth round, 253rd overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He turned professional at the end of the 1999-00 season and has played in 66 NHL games with Carolina and Philadelphia, notching two goals, seven assists (9 points) and 47 penalty minutes.

The Hurricanes acquired Brendl and St. Jacques on Feb. 7, 2003, in exchange for Sami Kapanen and Ryan Bast.
