\u2018CANES TO PARTICIPATE IN OTTAWA ROOKIE TOURNAMENT
RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes will participate in the Ottawa Senators’ rookie tournament to take place Sept. 5-9. Andrew Ladd, who Carolina selected with the fourth-overall pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, will highlight the Hurricanes’ tournament squad.

“The rookie tournament gives us an opportunity to see many of our organization’s recently-drafted players in action against similar-aged competition,” said Karmanos. “It’s a good warm-up for a few of the players that may join our training camp the following week.”

The Hurricanes’ rookie-tournament team will face teams of drafted players and free-agent tryouts representing the Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs. Carolina’s team will be comprised of at least nine drafted players – goaltenders Kevin Nastiuk (2003, 4th round) and Justin Peters (2004, 2nd round); defensemen Brett Carson (2004, 4th round), Danny Richmond (2003, 2nd round) and Jakub Vojta (2005, 4th round); forwards Joe Barnes (2005, 3rd round), Nicolas Blanchard (2005, 6th round), Ladd (2004, 1st round) and Ondrej Otcenas (2005, 5th round) – and 12 free-agent tryouts.

Eligibility rules for the tournament require that no more than three players per team have one year of American Hockey League experience, and those players must have been born after 1983 if they played in the Canadian Hockey League. Drafted players who held amateur status in 2004-05 and any player approved by the other four teams are also eligible. Of Carolina’s drafted players confirmed for the tournament, only Richmond has professional playing experience, having spent all of 2004-05 with the Hurricanes’ AHL affiliate, the Lowell Lock Monsters.

Along with daily on- and off-ice workouts, the team will play one game per day beginning on Sept. 6 against Florida at 4:30 p.m. Carolina’s team will also face Toronto (Sept. 7, 8 p.m.), Ottawa (Sept. 8, 4:30 p.m.) and Montreal (Sept. 9, 4:30 p.m.) in the round-robin tournament. The Hurricanes’ first three games will take place at the Corel Centre, the Senators’ home rink, while the team’s final game will be played at the Ottawa Civic Center.

The rookie tournament precedes the start of Carolina’s training camp which will open in Raleigh on Sept. 13. Training camp information will follow later this week.
