HURRICANES ACQUIRE PETRUZALEK FROM RANGERS
Isbister dealt to New York for prospect and conditional draft pick

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Nov. 21, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes today announced that the team has acquired center Jakub Petruzalek (YA-kuhb peh-troo-ZAL-ehk) from the New York Rangers along with a conditional pick in the 2008 Entry Draft in exchange for forward Brad Isbister.

Petruzalek, 21, is currently in his first professional season and has totaled two points (0g, 2a) in six games for Hartford of the American Hockey League (AHL) and 10 points (1g, 9a) in seven games for Charlotte of the ECHL. The Litvinov, Czech Republic, native was New York’s ninth round (266th overall) selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He tallied 34 goals and 60 assists (94 points) in 83 games with Ottawa and Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) between 2004 and 2006 prior to turning professional.

The Hurricanes signed Isbister as a free agent in August. He had eight points (3g, 5a) and 54 penalty minutes in nine games with Albany of the AHL this season.

The Carolina Hurricanes take on the New York Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden (7 p.m., Versus HD, Hurricanes Radio Network) before busing to Long Island to face the Islanders Wednesday evening (7:30 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). Carolina completes its three-game road trip in Boston on Friday afternoon (12 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network), and then returns home to face the Ottawa Senators on Nov. 28 and the Montreal Canadiens on Nov. 30 at the RBC Center.
