\'CANES FALL TO LEAFS IN GAME 2 OF ROOKIE TOURNAMENT
Ladd Scores Carolina’s Goal, Third of Tournament

OTTAWA, Ont. – The Carolina Hurricanes fell 2-1 to Toronto at the Corel Centre on Wednesday in their second game of the 2005 Ottawa Senators NHL Rookie Tournament. Andrew Ladd, the Hurricanes’ first-round (4th overall) selection in 2004, scored Carolina’s lone goal just 1:50 into the game on the power play.

Ladd scored following a battle in front of Toronto netminder Justin Pogge after linemates Kevin Estrada and Vince Bellissimo worked the puck low in the offensive zone. Ladd beat Pogge at the right post to give Carolina an early 1-0 lead. The Maple Leafs scored three times in the second period to close the game’s scoring.

Kevin Nastiuk, the Hurricanes’ fourth-round (126th overall) choice in 2003, started the game in net for Carolina and made 26 saves in his 29:52 between the pipes. Nastiuk allowed just one goal when Alexander Steen took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play 7:22 into the second frame. Justin Peters, the Hurricanes’ second-round (38th overall) pick in 2004, allowed two goals in his 29:38, but still turned away 22 of 24 Maple Leafs shots he faced.

The Hurricanes’ rookie squad will next face tournament host Ottawa on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at the Corel Centre. Please visit CarolinaHurricanes.com for further updates from Ottawa.

Notes: Toronto out-shot Carolina 51-21 in the game… The teams combined for 54 penalty minutes in the game, including two fights. Rookie tournament team captain, defenseman Danny Richmond, and free-agent tryout forward Brandon Tidball dropped the gloves for Carolina… Forward Joe Barnes, a third-round pick of Carolina in 2005, left the game in the first period after taking a hit that sent him into the boards… Toronto’s rookie squad, led by former Hurricanes coach Paul Maurice, moved to 2-0 on the tournament after beating Ottawa in overtime on Tuesday…
