CAROLINA ROOKIES DOWN SENS BEHIND PETERS\' 41 SAVES
Free-agent tryout Stathopoulos scores twice in win against host team

OTTAWA, Ont. – The Carolina Hurricanes rookie tournament team scored a 3-1 victory against the host Ottawa Senators at the Corel Centre on Thursday. Hurricanes netminder Justin Peters, Carolina’s second-round (38th overall) selection of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, stopped 41 of 42 Senators shots and earned an assist on Carolina’s second goal to lead the Hurricanes to victory.

Free-agent tryout Mike Stathopoulos struck first for Carolina with 1:43 remaining in the opening period while Senators forward Danny Bois served a two-minute interference penalty. Craig Voakes, a 20-goal scorer in 2004-05 with Kitchener of the Ontario Hockey League, made it 2-0 just 1:11 into the second period, finding the corner of the net above Ottawa goaltender Jeff Glass’ left shoulder. Sean Stafanski scored early in the third period for Ottawa before Stathopoulos closed the game’s scoring when he beat Glass on a pass from free-agent tryout Darryl Boyce.

The Hurricanes’ rookie squad will face Montreal at 4:30 p.m. on Friday in its final game of the rookie tournament. The game will take place at the Ottawa Civic Centre. Please visit CarolinaHurricanes.com for further updates from Ottawa.

Notes: Boyce returned to the lineup Thursday after vision problems kept him sidelined against Toronto on Wednesday. He had corrective eye surgery less than two weeks prior to the start of this week’s tournament… Stathopoulos is now tied with Hurricanes 2004 first-round (4th overall) draft pick Andrew Ladd for the team lead with three goals in Carolina’s three tournament games… Rookie team captain, defenseman Danny Richmond, earned an assist on Stathopoulos’ first goal… Boyce dropped the gloves with Ottawa forward Sean Stefanski in the game’s lone fight.
