Hurricanes Recall Three from Albany

Borer, Conboy and Mormina get call as Carolina players suffer from the flu

RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled defensemen Casey Borer, Tim Conboy and Joey Mormina, from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. The Hurricanes placed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, and forwards Matt Cullen and Patrick Eaves, on injured reserve, to make room on the team’s roster for the recalled players. Borer, Conboy and Mormina are being recalled as several Hurricanes regulars have come down with the flu.

For Borer, 22, this marks his second recall to Carolina during this, his first full professional season. The Minneapolis, MN, native played in eight games with the Hurricanes from Jan. 2 to Jan. 17, notching a goal and two assists while averaging 14:16 of ice time per game. In 44 AHL games this season, Borer (6’2”, 205 lbs.) has scored five goals and earned nine assists (14 points), and is tied for the team lead with a plus-11 plus/minus rating. Carolina drafted Borer in the third round, 69th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Conboy, 25, is being recalled to the Hurricanes for the second time this season. The Farrmington, MN, native made his NHL debut on Jan. 12, earning an assist and registering five penalty minutes for scrapping with Colorado forward Scott Parker. Conboy (6’2”, 210 lbs.) has scored one goal and earned two assists (3 points) in 49 AHL games this season, and leads all River Rats skaters with 189 penalty minutes. This is Conboy’s second season with the Hurricanes organization after the team signed him as a free agent in July 2006.

This marks the NHL first recall for Mormina (6’6”, 220 lbs.), who joined the Hurricanes as a free agent in July 2007. The Montreal, Que., native has scored two goals and earned four assists (6 points), while accumulating 70 penalty minutes in 51 games with Albany this season. Mormina, 25, signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Kings, and skated two seasons with the Kings’ AHL affiliate, Manchester, following a four-year collegiate career at Colgate. Philadelphia drafted Mormina in the sixth round, 193rd overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
