Hurricanes Acquire Rights to Darcy Hordichuk

Nashville will receive a conditional fifth-round pick in exchange for winger

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has acquired the rights to left wing Darcy Hordichuk from the Nashville Predators. In exchange, Nashville will receive Carolina’s fifth-round draft pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. If the Hurricanes do not sign Hordichuk, who is an unrestricted free agent, prior to the start of the 2008-09 season, Carolina will receive Nashville’s fifth-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Hordichuk, 27, completed his seventh NHL season in 2007-08, totaling one goal and two assists (3 points) and 60 penalty minutes in 45 games played for the Predators. A native of Kamsack, Saskatchewan, he also played in five of the Predators’ six playoff games, totaling two penalty minutes.

Hordichuk (6’1’’, 215 lbs.) earned career highs in games played (74), goals (7), assists (6), points (13) and penalty minutes (163) during the 2005-06 season with Nashville, leading the Predators in penalty minutes (163) and hits (150). Originally drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the sixth round (180th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, he has played 302 career NHL games with Atlanta, Phoenix, Florida and Nashville, totaling 13 goals and 13 assists (26 points) and 747 penalty minutes.
