Hurricanes\' Whitney to Undergo Surgery

Forward expected to miss 2-3 weeks of action

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that left wing Ray Whitney will undergo surgery on Saturday to repair a damaged bursa in his leg. Dr. Marty Isbell will perform the surgery at Rex Hospital in Raleigh, and Whitney is expected to miss two to three weeks of action.

Whitney, 35, ranks second among all Hurricanes skaters with 25 goals and 59 points this season, despite having played in just 63 of the team’s 72 games. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alb., native is in his third season with the Hurricanes and led the club in scoring with 83 points (32g, 51a) in 2006-07. Whitney (5’10”, 180 lbs.) is in his 16th NHL season and has totaled 279 goals and 453 assists (732 points) in 907 regular-season games with San Jose, Edmonton, Florida, Columbus, Detroit and Carolina.
