COLE TO MISS AT LEAST 6-8 WEEKS WITH FRACTURED VERTEBRA
Forward Andrew Ladd to be recalled from Lowell

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 5, 2006

RALEIGH, NC –
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Erik Cole has a compression fracture in a vertebra in his neck and is expected to miss at least the remainder of the regular season. Forward Andrew Ladd will be recalled from Lowell of the American Hockey League tonight and will be available to play Monday night in New York against the Rangers.

Cole sustained the injury when he was boarded from behind by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik with 5:18 left in the Hurricanes’ 7-5 victory Saturday night in Pittsburgh. Cole was released from UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh today and flown back to Raleigh for examination by Dr. Douglas Martini. Prior to the injury, the Oswego, NY, native had established career highs in goals (30), assists (30) and points (60). He currently ranks tied for second on the Hurricanes in scoring and goals. He ranks tied for second in the NHL in game-winning goals (8) and tenth among league forwards in hits (123).

Ladd, 20, is in his first professional season and has played in 17 games with Carolina, notching six goals and two assists (8 points). The Maple Ridge, B.C., native has 11 goals and eight assists (19 points) in 25 AHL games this season with Lowell. Carolina selected Ladd in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

The Carolina Hurricanes visit the New York Rangers Monday night at Madison Square Garden (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) and will also travel to Philadelphia and Florida before returning home to face the Rangers at the RBC Center on Tuesday, March 14. Individual game tickets for all remaining Hurricanes games at the RBC Center can be purchased at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster outlets, by calling 919-834-4000 or via CarolinaHurricanes.com.
