Hurricanes Sign Patrick Eaves

Right wing agrees to three-year contract with Carolina

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have agreed to terms with right wing Patrick Eaves on a three-year contract. Eaves will earn $1.1 in 2008-09, $1.4 million in 2009-10 and $1.7 million in 2010-11.

“Patrick is an important part of our forward corps going forward,” said Rutherford. “He just turned 24 years old and already has a 20-goal season under his belt. He battled through some injuries this past season, but we are looking forward to having him back and healthy this fall.”

Eaves, 24, completed his third NHL season in 2007-08, splitting the year between Ottawa and Carolina. The Fairbault, MN, native tallied four goals and six assists (10 points) in 26 games with the Senators before being acquired by Carolina on Feb. 11 along with Joe Corvo in exchange for Cory Stillman and Mike Commodore. He notched a goal and four assists (5 points) with Carolina to complete the season with five goals and 10 assists (15 points) in 37 games played. Eaves (5’11”, 190 lbs.) missed 42 games due to injury in 2007-08, playing in just 11 of the Hurricanes’ final 24 games after the trade, and underwent shoulder surgery on March 28. Selected by Ottawa in the first round, 29th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Eaves has totaled 39 goals and 37 assists (76 points) in 168 career regular-season NHL games with Ottawa and Carolina. He has also appeared in 17 Stanley Cup Playoff games, helping the Senators reach the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals.

Prior to turning professional, Eaves played three years of collegiate hockey at Boston College, where was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award as the top collegiate hockey player in 2004-05, registering 19 goals and 29 assists (48 points) in 36 games for the Eagles. Born in Calgary, Alb., but raised in Minnesota, Eaves was also a part of the United States National Team Development Program for two years, and captured a gold medal with the United States at the 2004 World Junior Championships.
