FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 30, 2006

Isbister was a 2005-06 teammate of David Tanabe, who agreed to terms with the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager for the 2006 Stanley Cup Champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with left wing Brad Isbister on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Isbister $600,000 at the NHL level and $95,000 at the American Hockey League level.

“Brad adds size and depth to our corps of forwards,” said Rutherford. “His NHL experience will be an asset to our organization this season.”

Isbister, 29, played in 58 games with the Boston Bruins in 2005-06, notching six goals, adding 17 assists (23 points) and totaling 46 penalty minutes while averaging 13:54 of ice time per game.

In eight NHL seasons, the Edmonton, Alb., native has scored 99 goals, earned 107 assists (206 points) and accumulated 563 penalty minutes in 467 regular-season games with Phoenix, the New York Islanders, Edmonton and Boston. The Winnipeg Jets selected Isbister (6’ 4”, 231 lbs.) in the third round, 67th overall, in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.

The Carolina Hurricanes will open their 2006-07 regular season on Oct. 4 at the RBC Center against the Buffalo Sabres. For information regarding Hurricanes ticket packages, please call 1-866-NHL-CANES or visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
