BRIND\u2019AMOUR, LAVIOLETTE FINALISTS FOR AWARDS
NHL to present awards June 22 in Vancouver

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 4, 2006

RALEIGH, NC –
The National Hockey League today announced that Carolina Hurricanes Captain Rod Brind’Amour and Head Coach Peter Laviolette are finalists for two of the league’s most prestigious annual awards. Brind’Amour has been selected as a finalist for the Frank J. Selke Trophy for the league’s most outstanding defensive forward, and Laviolette is a finalist for the Jack Adams Award for coach of the year.

The winners will be announced at the NHL Awards Television Special on June 22 in Vancouver.

Brind’Amour led all NHL forwards in average time on ice at 24:17 and ranked third in the NHL with a 59.1 faceoff-winning percentage. Brind’Amour notched two shorthanded goals and led all Hurricanes skaters in playing an average of 4:21 per game shorthanded, ranking ninth among all NHL forwards in shorthanded time on ice. Brind’Amour served as the Hurricanes’ captain, ranked tied for second on the team with 31 goals, fourth on the team with 39 assists and 70 points, led Carolina forwards with a plus-8 rating and played in 78 of the team’s 82 regular-season games. He notched a career high 19 power-play goals to rank tied for the team lead and tied for eighth in the NHL.

Brind’Amour is joined by Ottawa’s Mike Fisher and Dallas’ Jere Lehtinen as finalists for the Selke Trophy. The Frank J. Selke Trophy is awarded annually “to the forward who best excels in the defensive aspects of the game.” The winner is selected in a poll by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association at the end of the regular season.

Laviolette completed his second season behind the Hurricanes’ bench and led the team to a 52-22-8 record, breaking the franchise records for points (112), wins (52), and home wins (31), and tying the record for road wins (21) in a season. The team finished the season as the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference after winning the Southeast Division championship by 20 points. Laviolette led the Hurricanes to two nine-game winning streaks, a nine-game home winning streak and a 13-win January, all of which are franchise bests. Laviolette is joined by Tom Renney of the New York Rangers and Lindy Ruff of the Buffalo Sabres as finalists for the Jack Adams Award.

The Hurricanes open their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Semifinal series against New Jersey on Saturday (2 p.m., NBC, Hurricanes Radio Network).
