Hurricanes Assign Andrew Ladd to Albany

Left winger to join Carolina’s top minor-league affiliate for four games

RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has assigned left wing Andrew Ladd to the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Ladd will join Carolina’s top minor-league affiliate for a four-game conditioning stint beginning Wednesday when it travels to Bridgeport for a divisional match up against the Sound Tigers.

“This is an important conditioning period for Andrew,” said Rutherford. “Since returning from his injury, he hasn’t seen enough ice time to get back to where he was at the beginning of the season.”

Ladd, 21, suffered an ankle injury late in the third period of the Hurricanes’ third game of the season on Oct. 6 at Washington. He missed 16 consecutive games before returning to Carolina’s lineup on Nov. 16 against Atlanta. The third-year NHLer scored one goal an recorded two penalty minutes while averaging 15:31 of ice time in the Hurricanes’ first three games of the season. In 12 games since returning to the lineup, the Maple Ridge, B.C., native has recorded one assist and seven penalty minutes while averaging 10:15 of ice time per game. Ladd (6’2”, 201 lbs.) was drafted by the Hurricanes in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, and has scored 18 goals, earned 16 assists (34 points) and accumulated 59 penalty minutes in 108 regular-season games with Carolina since his NHL debut on Nov. 20, 2005.
