\'CANES TO HONOR BRIND\'AMOUR\'S 1,000th POINT, DEC. 29
Game against Anaheim added to Hurricanes’ FSN South telecast schedule

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Dec. 1, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will honor Captain Rod Brind’Amour on Dec. 29 when the Hurricanes host the Anaheim Ducks at the RBC Center. Brind’Amour earned his 1,000th NHL point on Nov. 4 at Ottawa, making him the 71st player in NHL history to achieve that milestone.

Prior to the game, the team will honor Brind’Amour with a special video tribute honoring his 18-year National Hockey League career, and the NHL will present Brind’Amour with milestone markers for 1,000 points and 600 assists, each of which Brind’Amour accomplished earlier this season. FSN South, the nation’s largest regional sports network and the Hurricanes’ cable-television rightsholder, has added the Dec. 29 game to its schedule and will carry the pre-game ceremony honoring Brind’Amour.

Fans attending Rod Brind’Amour Night will receive a commemorative puck, courtesy of Hurricanes corporate partner GlaxoSmithKline. In addition, fans who donate a toy to the Second Annual Hurricanes Wives’ Toy Drive from Dec. 11-15, will receive a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for tickets to the Dec. 29 game.

Brind’Amour is in his seventh season with the Hurricanes and his 18th NHL season. The Ottawa, Ont., native leads the Hurricanes this season in points (34) and assists (24) and is just eight goals shy of 400 for his NHL career. The 36-year-old centerman led the Hurricanes in goal-scoring during the team’s 25-game postseason run that culminated in Carolina winning the Stanley Cup and bringing North Carolina its first major-league sports championship. Brind’Amour played his 1,200th NHL game on Nov. 1 at Atlanta, and now has 392 goals, 623 assists (1,015 points) in 1,214 NHL regular-season games with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Carolina.

The Carolina Hurricanes wrap up their current three-game home stand on Saturday against the Boston Bruins (7 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network) before heading west for a four-game road trip against Northwest Division opponents. Individual-game tickets all Hurricanes home games in December and January, including Rod Brind’Amour Night on Dec. 29 against Anaheim, are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or via www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
