CANES ACTIVATE HUTCHINSON FROM INJURED RESERVE
Defenseman has missed two months following wrist surgery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 31, 2006

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have activated defenseman Andrew Hutchinson from injured reserve. Hutchinson has missed two months of action following surgery to repair a wrist injury he suffered in Carolina’s game at Montreal on Jan. 31.

Hutchinson, 26, is in his fifth professional season and first with the Hurricanes following the July 29, 2005, trade that brought him to Carolina from Nashville. In 32 games with the Hurricanes this season, the Evanston, Ill., native has scored three goals and added seven assists (10 points). He turned professional at the end of the 2001-02 season following a four-year career at Michigan State that included his selection as the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s Best Defenseman in 2000-01. In 50 NHL games with Nashville and Carolina, Hutchinson (6’ 2”, 206 lbs.) has recorded seven goals and 11 assists (18 points) and 20 penalty minutes.

The Carolina Hurricanes wrap up a four-game home stand tonight against the Florida Panthers (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) before playing the Atlanta Thrashers at Philips Arena on Saturday (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). Individual tickets for all 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.
