ERIK COLE NAMED TO UNITED STATES OLYMPIC TEAM
Winger has 25 points in 32 games this season for Hurricanes

RALEIGH, NC –
USA Hockey tonight announced that Carolina Hurricanes left wing Erik Cole has been named to the 2006 United States Men’s Olympic Hockey team. Team USA, coached by Hurricanes’ head coach Peter Laviolette, plays its first game of the 2006 Winter Olympics on Feb. 15, 2006 against Latvia at Palasport Arena in Turin, Italy.

Cole, 27, has scored 25 points (9g, 16a) while playing in all 32 games for Carolina this season. The Oswego, NY native is in his fourth NHL season with the Hurricanes, having tallied 134 points (57g, 77a) and 242 penalty minutes in 246 games. A third-round pick of the Hurricanes in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Cole represented the United States at the 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championships in Austria, notching six points (1g, 5a) in seven games.

The Carolina Hurricanes continue a five-game home stand on Tuesday against Tampa Bay (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). The Hurricanes are unbeaten on the home stand, having defeated Chicago, Columbus and New Jersey last week to improve their season record to 21-9-2, the second-best record in the Eastern Conference. Fans who donate a new or gently worn, laundered winter hat, scarf or gloves to the Goodwill Community Foundation prior to Tuesday’s contest will receive a two-for-one ticket voucher for lower level or club level tickets to the game. The Hurricanes conclude the home stand against Florida on Friday (7 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network). Individual game tickets for all Hurricanes games at the RBC Center in November, December and January can be purchased at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster outlets, by calling 919-834-4000 or via CarolinaHurricanes.com.
