HURRICANES AGREE TO TERMS WITH GLEN WESLEY
Veteran defenseman led Hurricanes in plus/minus in 2003-04

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have agreed to terms with defenseman Glen Wesley on a one-year contract that will pay him $1 million.

“Glen has been a mainstay of this organization for a long time and he has made his home in North Carolina,” said Rutherford. “He is a leader on and off the ice and we are very happy to have him back for another season.”

Wesley, 36, completed his 17th NHL season and 10th with the Hurricanes franchise in 2003-04, tallying six assists in 74 games for Carolina. He led all Hurricanes in plus/minus at plus-18, ranking 15th among NHL defenseman. Wesley (6’1’’, 205 lbs.) earned an even or better plus/minus rating in 47 of his final 52 games of the season, recording a plus-18 rating during that time frame.

A native of Red Deer, Alb., Wesley is ranked third in franchise history in games played (703), just five games behind Kevin Dineen for second. He has notched 196 points (47g, 149a) and 466 penalty minutes during his 10 seasons with the franchise. Wesley has played 1,247 career NHL games with Boston, Toronto, Hartford and Carolina, totaling 506 points (124g, 382a) and 891 penalty minutes. Originally drafted third overall in the first round by the Boston Bruins in 1987, Wesley signed as a free agent with Carolina last July after being dealt by the Hurricanes to Toronto on March 9 in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
