Hurricanes Sign 2004 Draft Pick Casey Borer
Defenseman completed a four-year career at St. Cloud State in 2006-07

RALEIGH, NC—Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has signed defenseman Casey Borer to a two-year contract. The deal will pay Borer $475,000 per year at the NHL level and, at the minor-league level, Borer will earn $50,000 in the first year and $60,000 in the second year. Borer also received a $75,000 signing bonus.

“Casey has good size and plays a solid, stay-at-home style," said Karmanos. “His character and work ethic make him a solid prospect on defense.”

Carolina’s third-round pick (69th overall) at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Borer (6’2”, 208 lbs.) completed his four-year career at St. Cloud State in 2007-08, notching two goals and nine assists (11 points) and 30 penalty minutes in 40 games for the Huskies. He served as team captain for the second consecutive season for St. Cloud State, which finished the season ranked No. 7 in the country. Borer totaled five goals and 36 assists (41 points) in 148 career games for the Huskies, and was twice chosen as a WCHA All-Academic selection. After the completion of his senior season, Borer joined Hurricanes’ AHL affiliate Albany, skating in one game for the River Rats.

Prior to attending St. Cloud State, Borer played for the United States National Team Development Program’s under-18 team. He has twice represented the United States in international competition, playing for the Americans at the 2003 Under-18 World Junior Championships and representing his country at the 2005 World Junior Championships in Grand Forks, N.D. Before joining the NTDP, Borer attended Shattuck-St. Mary’s prep school and Huron High School. He won the Midget AAA national title while at Shattuck-St. Mary’s.
