Hurricanes Assign John Grahame to Albany

Goaltender to join the River Rats tonight against Syracuse 

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has assigned goaltender John Grahame to its top minor-league affiliate, the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Grahame is expected to join the River Rats for the team’s home game tonight against the Syracuse Crunch at the Times Union Center.

Grahame has played in 13 of the Hurricanes’ 42 games this season, earning a 4-6-1 record, a 3.83 goals-against average and an .875 save percentage. In 2006-07, Grahame (6’3”, 220 lbs.) played in 28 games for Carolina, notching a 10-13-2 record, a 2.85 goals-against average and an .897 save percentage. The Hurricanes signed the Denver, CO, native as a free agent during the 2006 off season. Since making his NHL debut in 1999-00 with Boston, he has played in 220 NHL games with Boston, Tampa Bay and Carolina, compiling a 96-85-18 record and a 2.78 career goals-against average.

For Grahame, 32, this marks his first stint in the AHL since 2000-01 with Boston’s top farm club, the Providence Bruins. In 1998-99, he won 37 regular-season games for Providence and backstopped now-Hurricanes head coach Peter Laviolette’s squad to a 15-4 playoff record as the Bruins captured the Calder Cup.
