Hurricanes Select Four on Draft\'s Second Day

Carolina selects three forwards, one defenseman and one goaltender in 2008 draft

RALEIGH, NC—The Carolina Hurricanes wrapped up the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday by making four selections on the draft’s second day. Forward Zac Dalpe (2nd round, 45th overall), defenseman Michal Jordan (4th round, 105th overall), goaltender Mike Murphy (6th round, 165th overall) and left wing Samuel Morneau (7th round, 195th overall) join Carolina’s first-round (14th overall) pick, Zach Boychuk, in rounding out Carolina’s 2008 draft class.

Dalpe, 18, is committed to Ohio State University of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for the 2008-09 season. In 2007-08, the Paris, Ont., native ranked fifth in the BCHL with 63 points (27g, 36a) in 46 regular-season games with Penticon, and helped lead the Vees to the BCHL championship with 17 points (8g, 9a) in 15 postseason games. Dalpe (6’0”, 170 lbs.) ranked No. 16 on the NHL Central Scouting Bureau’s final rankings of North American skaters released in April, climbing the list from his No. 26 rank in December’s mid-term rankings.

Jordan, 17, joined the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League via trade in 2007-08, and scored six goals and earned 22 assists (28 points) in a combined 61 OHL games last season with Windsor and Plymouth. The Zlin, Czech Republic, native won the gold medal at the 2008 World Under-18 Junior Championships with the Czech Republic and was named the Whalers’ Rookie of the Year for 2007-08. Jordan (6’2”, 181 lbs.) earned three assists in the Whalers’ four 2008 playoff games.

Murphy, 19, led the Belleville Bulls to the OHL’s second-best regular-season record in 2007-08, as he posted OHL-bests with a 2.24 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage. The Inverary, Ont., native finished the season with a 36-7-4 record in 49 games played, with his 36 wins ranking second in the league. Murphy (5’11” 161 lbs.) posted a 14-3-1 record, a 2.32 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage while playing in 19 of Belleville’s 21 postseason games, as the Bulls fell to Kitchener in seven games in the championship round.

Morneau, 18, scored 23 goals and earned 18 assists (42 points) in 68 regular-season games with Baie-Comeau of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2007-08. The Cowansville, Que., native ranked sixth among team skaters in scoring as Baie-Comeau posted a 45-19-6 regular-season record, finishing the regular season ranked second in the QMJHL’s Eastern Conference.
