HURRICANES\' BRET HEDICAN TO UNDERGO SURGERY
Veteran defenseman expected to miss three to four weeks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Jan. 4, 2007

RALEIGH, NC—
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman Bret Hedican will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left ring finger. Hedican will travel to Vail, CO, where Dr. Randy Viola will perform the procedure at Vail Valley Medical Center on Friday. Hedican is expected to miss three to four weeks of action following the surgery.

Hedican, 36, leads all Carolina defensemen this season, averaging 20:53 of ice time per game and ranks third on the team with 61 blocked shots. The St. Paul, MN., native has earned eight assists in 37 games this season to rank third among team defensemen in scoring. Hedican (6’2”, 210 lbs.) is in his 15th NHL season and his fifth with the Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes begin a two-game home stand when they host the Phoenix Coyotes on tonight at the RBC Center. The Food Bank of Eastern North Carolina will be on hand prior to the game to collect non-perishable food. Fans donating at least two cans of food will receive a buy-one-get-one-free ticket voucher good for the game. The home stand concludes Saturday night, when Carolina hosts the New York Islanders.
