HURRICANES TRADE RADIM VRBATA TO CHICAGO

Czech winger exchanged for future considerations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Dec. 29, 2005

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has traded right wing Radim Vrbata (rah DEEM vuhr BAH tuh) to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for future considerations.

“Radim’s ice time has been limited with the Hurricanes this season,” said Rutherford. “This will give him a fresh start.”

Vrbata, 24, has posted three goals and two assists (5 points) in 16 games with the Hurricanes this season. He has been a healthy extra for 21 of Carolina’s 37 games, including each of the last 11. Vrbata was originally acquired by Carolina from Colorado on March 11, 2003, in exchange for winger Bates Battaglia. In 106 games for the Hurricanes, the Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic, native posted 19 goals and 16 assists (35 points).

The Carolina Hurricanes continue a four-game home stand with a special New Year’s Eve game on Saturday at 8 p.m. against the Montreal Canadiens (FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). The home stand continues on Jan. 4 against the Atlanta Thrashers (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) and concludes on Jan. 6 against the New York Islanders (7 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network). Individual game tickets for all Hurricanes home games in December and January can be purchased at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster outlets, by calling 919-834-4000 or via CarolinaHurricanes.com.
