HURRICANES ACQUIRE MARK FLOOD FROM COLUMBUS
Teams swap defensemen as Walser returns to Blue Jackets organization

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Nov. 29, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired defenseman Mark Flood from Columbus in exchange for defenseman Derrick Walser. Flood will report to Carolina’s top minor-league affiliate, the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League.

Flood, 22, is in his second professional season and has recorded a goal and an assist (2 points) in eight games this season with the Syracuse Crunch, the Blue Jackets’ AHL affiliate. The Charlottetown, PEI, native split the 2005-06 season between Syracuse and Dayton of the ECHL. In nine AHL games last season, Flood recorded one goal and one assist (2 points) while totaling 25 points (11g, 14a) in 50 ECHL games.

Flood signed as a free agent with Columbus on Aug. 18, 2005, following his four-year major junior hockey career with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League. Flood (6’1”, 190 lbs.) was a teammate of Hurricanes center Eric Staal at Peterborough in 2001-02 and 2002-03, and recorded 25 goals, 95 assists (120 points) and 83 penalty minutes in 253 career OHL regular-season games. The Montreal Canadiens originally drafted Flood in the sixth round, 188th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

The Carolina Hurricanes continue a three-game home stand on Thursday against Montreal (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). Tickets for Thursday’s game and all Hurricanes home games in November and December are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or by visiting www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
