CANES ANNOUNCE 2005-06 CABLE TELEVISION SCHEDULE

Fox Sports Net will televise 55 games, including 38 of Carolina’s 41 road contests

RALEIGH, NC –
Matt West, Vice President of Business Operations for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced the team’s cable television schedule. Fox Sports Net South will televise 55 Hurricanes games during the 2005-06 season, including 38 of the team’s 41 road games – the most away games to be televised since the team arrived in North Carolina. John Forslund will serve as the play-by-play announcer for the broadcasts. He will be joined again this season by color analyst Tripp Tracy.

“We are very excited that Fox Sports Net has chosen to televise nearly all of our team’s away games, allowing our fans their best opportunity to date to follow the team away from the RBC Center,” said West. “FSN is a terrific television partner and they continue to work with us to find ways to better serve our fans.”

Fox Sports Net’s coverage begins with the Hurricanes’ season opener against the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning on Oct. 5 at 7:30 in Tampa. FSN will also carry the Hurricanes’ home opener on Oct. 7 at the RBC Center against Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Additional highlights of the FSN package include the team’s entire Pacific Division road trip in early December, with games at Dallas, Phoenix, Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose; the New Year’s Eve match-up against the Montreal Canadiens at the RBC Center; and each of the final seven games of the regular season.

John Forslund enters his 11th season as the Hurricanes’ television play-by-play announcer and his 15th year with the club. As the schedule permits, Forslund has served as a play-by-play announcer for nationally televised cable broadcasts of regular season and playoff hockey games. In addition to his hockey work, Forslund has also covered Atlantic Coast Conference and Southern Conference basketball for Fox Sports Net. In 2003, Forslund won Telly awards for Forslund Focus, part of the Hurricanes’ in-game presentation, and “Raisin’ Canes”, the home video celebrating the Hurricanes’ 2002 playoff run. Forslund first joined the organization for the 1991-92 season as the public relations director, a position he held for four seasons. During his tenure, Forslund also served as the Hartford Whalers color analyst on the Whalers Radio Network. Prior to his appointment in Hartford, Forslund handled the television and radio broadcasts for the Springfield Indians of the American Hockey League from 1984-1991. He was recognized as one of the AHL’s top publicists/announcers when he received the Ken McKenzie Award in 1989. Beginning in 2005, Forslund will serve as honorary chairman for the Jimmy V Celebrity Junior Golf Classic, an annual tournament to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research.

Tripp Tracy enters his seventh season alongside John Forslund on the Hurricanes Television Network. A former goaltender, Tracy was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. After completing four seasons at Harvard University, Tracy signed a free agent contract with the Hurricanes in August of 1996. He spent two seasons in the organization, playing for Richmond (ECHL), Springfield (AHL) and New Haven (AHL). He retired in 1998 and accepted a position at CNN before returning to the organization for the 1998-99 season.

The Hurricanes will have one game televised nationally on OLN, their Jan. 10 home game against the Detroit Red Wings.
