HURRICANES ACQUIRE MARK RECCHI FROM PENGUINS
Kolanos, Nordgren and second rounder to Pittsburgh; Recchi waived no-trade for deal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 9, 2006

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired right wing Mark Recchi from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Recchi waived his no-trade clause to facilitate the trade to Carolina as the Hurricanes sent left wing Niklas Nordgren, center Krystofer Kolanos and the team’s second-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft to Pittsburgh.

“Mark is an accomplished goal scorer and playmaker who will be an asset to the Hurricanes’ forward lines,” said Rutherford. “His playoff experience will provide added leadership for our team as we look forward to the postseason.”

Recchi, 38, ranks second among all Pittsburgh scorers with 24 goals and 33 assists (57 points), including 11 power-play goals, in 63 games this season. The Kamloops, B.C., native is in his 17th NHL season, and has recorded 480 goals, 778 assists (1,258 points), 157 power-play goals and 836 penalty minutes in 1,236 regular-season games with Pittsburgh, Montreal and Philadelphia. Recchi (5’10”, 190 lbs.) was a key member of Pittsburgh’s 1991 Stanley Cup-winning team, recording 10 goals and 24 assists (34 points) during the Penguins’ 24-game postseason. In 110 career playoff games, Recchi has recorded 40 goals and 57 assists (97 points). He was originally drafted by the Penguins in the fourth round, 67th overall, in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft.

The Carolina Hurricanes begin a back-to-back set against the Florida Panthers on Friday at the BankAtlantic Center (7:30 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) and will return to Raleigh following Saturday’s game. The Hurricanes will host the Atlantic Division-leading the New York Rangers on Tuesday at the RBC Center before beginning a four-game road swing at Montreal on March 16. 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.
