HURRICANES AGREE TO TERMS WITH STEPHEN PEAT
Winger agrees to one-year, two-way contract

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Aug. 31, 2006

RALEIGH, NC --
Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with right wing Stephen Peat on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Peat $450,000 at the NHL level and $75,000 at the American Hockey League level.

“Stephen has fully recovered from the injury that kept him out of action at the end of last season, and he adds more toughness to our organization,” said Karmanos.

Peat, 26, split the 2005-06 season between Washington (NHL), Hershey (AHL) and Lowell (AHL). He made his season debut with the Washington Capitals against Atlanta on Oct. 8 prior to missing 21 games with a hand injury. The Princeton, B.C., native was assigned to Hershey on Dec. 18 and registered one assist, seven penalty minutes and a (+3) rating in five games with the Bears. Acquired by the Hurricanes on Dec. 28 in exchange for Colin Forbes, Peat played three games with the Lock Monsters, totaling one goal, one assist (2 points) and 23 penalty minutes before missing the final half of the season with a groin/abdominal injury.

A second-round draft pick of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft, Peat has totaled 10 points (8g, 2a) and 234 penalty minutes in 130 career NHL games, all with Washington. He has seven points (3g, 4a) and 148 penalty minutes in 49 career AHL games with Portland, Hershey and Lowell.

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.
