Hurricanes TV Tandem Sign Multi-Year Deals

Forslund, Tracy will continue as team’s TV announcers

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reached multi-year agreements with television play-by-play voice John Forslund and television analyst Tripp Tracy.

“Hurricanes fans have become very familiar with John and Tripp,” said Rutherford. “They do a fantastic job of describing and analyzing the action during our telecasts, and have become one of the best in our league.”

Forslund enters his 13th season as the Hurricanes’ television play-by-play man and his 17th year with the club. As in previous seasons, he also will serve as a play-by-play announcer for regular season and playoff games on the NHL’s national cable television rightsholder Versus.

Forslund first joined the organization for the 1991-92 season as the public relations director, a position he held for four seasons. During his tenure, Forslund also served as the Hartford Whalers color analyst on the Whalers Radio Network. Prior to his appointment in Hartford, Forslund handled the television and radio broadcasts for the Springfield Indians of the American Hockey League from 1984-1991. He was recognized as one of the AHL’s top publicists/announcers when he received the Ken McKenzie Award in 1989. Since 2005, Forslund has served as honorary chairman for the Jimmy V Celebrity Junior Golf Classic, an annual tournament to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research.

Tracy enters his ninth season alongside Forslund as the team’s television analyst. A former goaltender, Tracy was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft. After completing four seasons at Harvard University, Tracy signed a free agent contract with the Hurricanes in August of 1996. He spent two seasons in the organization, playing for Richmond (ECHL), Springfield (AHL), New Haven (AHL) and Carolina (NHL). He retired in 1998 and accepted a position at CNN before returning to the organization for the 1998-99 season.
