HURRICANES AGREE TO TERMS WITH JOE BARNES
Carolina drafted center in 2005

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Aug. 24, 2006

RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with center Joe Barnes on a three-year contract. The first year of the deal will pay Barnes $450,000 at the NHL level and $50,000 at the minor-league level while, the second and third years of the deal will pay him $475,000 at the NHL level, and $55,000 and $60,000 per year in the minors, respectively. Along with his salary, Barnes receives a $150,00 signing bonus.

“Joe gives our organization size and depth at the center position,” said Karmanos. “He was impressive at our conditioning camp this summer, showing good strength at a young age and displaying a solid work ethic that will fit nicely in our organization.”

In 2005-06, Barnes (6’ 3”, 205 lbs.) notched 25 goals and earned 27 assists (52 points) while accumulating 55 penalty minutes in 55 regular-season games with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League. Despite missing 17 games due to injury, the Winnipeg, Man., native ranked fourth among Blades skaters in goals and sixth in points.

The Hurricanes drafted Barnes in the third round, 64th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. In four complete seasons with Saskatoon, Barnes, 20, scored 69 goals, had 83 assists and amassed 155 penalty minutes in 239 career regular-season games. In 2004-05, he set career highs with 30 goals and 32 assists while playing in all 72 of the Blades’ games.
