HURRICANES TO PARTICIPATE IN TRIBUTE TO HOCKEY MOMS
All players will use pink sticks during warm-ups to raise money for breast cancer research

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—March 14, 2007

RALEIGH, NC—
Doug Warf, Manager of Community Relations for the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that every Hurricanes player will participate in TPS Hockey’s second annual Tribute to Hockey Moms. Each Hurricanes player will use a special edition pink stick prior to or during Thursday’s home game against the New Jersey Devils in an effort to raise money for breast cancer research, and in recognition of hockey moms everywhere.

TPS Hockey, in conjunction with other stick manufacturers, is creating the special edition pink sticks featuring the pink ribbon – the internationally recognized symbol for the fight against breast cancer. The sticks will be autographed by the players and auctioned on eBay through the TPS Tribute to Hockey Moms – Pink Stick Auction store front. Funds raised will support breast cancer research through the NHL/NHLPA’s Hockey Fights Cancer program and its Canadian charity partner, the Canadian Cancer Society.

Last year’s inaugural campaign involved more than 400 players and raised more than $150,000. Louisville Slugger, a partner in TPS, took the idea to Major League Baseball and, on Mothers Day 2006, baseball players used pink bats to pay tribute to their moms and raised $250,000.

The Carolina Hurricanes host the New Jersey Devils at the RBC Center on Thursday night (7:30 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) in the first half of a home-and-home set. Carolina will travel to New Jersey to take on the Devils at Continental Airlines Arena on Saturday at 1 p.m. (FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). Individual-game tickets for all Hurricanes home games are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or via www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
