CANES ACTIVATE VASICEK FROM INJURED RESERVE
Forward missed 59 games following knee surgery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 3, 2006

RALEIGH, NC –
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have activated forward Josef Vasicek from injured reserve. Vasicek missed 59 games after suffering a knee injury on Nov. 11 against the Florida Panthers. He underwent successful surgery on the knee on Dec. 5, performed by Dr. Douglas Martini of Cary Orthopedic.

Vasicek (6’4’’, 210 lbs.) had tallied five points (2g, 3a) in 15 games this season prior to the injury. In 2003-04, he led the Hurricanes in goals (19), points (45), games played (82) and game-winning goals (5) and was tied for second in assists (26) and power-play goals (6). Drafted by the Hurricanes in the fourth round, 91st overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Vasicek has totaled 53 goals and 69 assists (122 points) and 203 penalty minutes in 308 career games with Carolina. He has played in 29 career playoff games with Carolina, notching seven points (5g, 2a) and 12 penalty minutes.

The Carolina Hurricanes host the Washington Capitals tonight at the RBC Center (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) before hitting the road for a three-game road trip. 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.
