Hurricanes Agree to Terms with David Tanabe

Defenseman to join Carolina in Washington

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman David Tanabe (ta-NAH-bee) on a two-year contract. The deal will pay Tanabe $600,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the minor league level in 2007-08, and $900,000 at the NHL level in 2008-09. Pending league approval and a physical, Tanabe will be available for the Hurricanes’ game tonight at Washington.

“David completes our team’s defensive corps,” said Rutherford. “He gives the Hurricanes depth at a position where we need depth.”

Tanabe, 27, has played parts of five seasons with the Hurricanes since turning professional in 1999-00. The White Bear Lake, Minn., native scored five goals and earned 12 assists (17 points) while skating in 60 games for Carolina in 2006-07. Tanabe returns to the organization that drafted him in the first round, 16th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, and where he has played 311 regular-season games. In his 431 career NHL regular-season games with Carolina, Phoenix and Boston, Tanabe has notched 29 goals, earned 82 assists (111 points) and accumulated 237 penalty minutes. He attended the St. Louis Blues’ training camp this fall, but was released from his professional tryout on Oct. 1.
