FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—March 8, 2007

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that left wing Erik Cole has been activated from the injured reserve list. Cole has missed the Hurricanes’ past seven games with a torn muscle in his hip area.

Cole, 28, has scored 25 goals and earned 26 assists to rank fifth on the team with 51 points while playing in 57 of Carolina’s 68 games this season. The Oswego, NY, native leads the Hurricanes and ranks eighth in the NHL with 186 hits this season, and had points in eight of his last 12 games played (1/11-2/8; 2/17: 7g, 6a) prior to being sidelined with the muscle tear.
