Hurricanes Activate Whitney, Williams

Forwards eligible to play tonight at Washington; Jensen reassigned to Albany

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated forwards Ray Whitney and Justin Williams from injured reserve. Whitney and Williams are eligible to play for the Hurricanes in the team’s game tonight at the Verizon Center against the Washington Capitals. Rutherford also announced that forward Joe Jensen has been reassigned to Albany of the American Hockey League.

Whitney, 35, has missed the Hurricanes’ last 12 games, and had surgery on March 15 to repair a damaged bursa in his leg. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alb., native is in his third season with the Hurricanes and ranks second on the team this season in goals (25) and points (59) while playing in 63 of the team’s 79 games. In 2006-07, Whitney (5’10”, 180 lbs.) led all Carolina skaters with 83 points (32g, 51a).

Williams, 26, suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the Hurricanes’ game at Florida on Dec. 20, and has missed the team’s last 43 games. The Cobourg, Ont., native is in his fourth season with Carolina, and has scored more than 30 goals in each of the last two seasons. Williams (6’1”, 195 lbs.), who represented the Eastern Conference at the 2007 NHL All-Star Game, notched nine goals and earned 21 assists (30 points) in 36 games this season before suffering the injury.
