Hurricanes Recall Dwight Helminen

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled center Dwight Helminen from Albany of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an emergency basis. The injury to Brandon Sutter left the Hurricanes with only 11 healthy forwards, heading into Tuesday night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Helminen, 25, has two goals and two assists (4 points) in 6 games with Albany this season. The Hancock, MI, native spent last season playing for JYP Jyvaskyla of Finland’s SM-Liiga, totaling 45 points (20g, 25a) in 52 games. Originally drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the eighth round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Helminen has earned 107 points (51g, 56a) in 204 career AHL games with Hartford and Albany. He has yet to play in an NHL regular-season game.

The Hurricanes continue their season-long six-game road swing at Montreal on Tuesday (7:30 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network) and will play at St. Louis on Thursday before returning to Raleigh. Carolina will host the Edmonton Oilers at the RBC Center on Saturday, Nov. 1, in the first of 11 home games for the Hurricanes during November. For information on Hurricanes ticket packages, visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com or call 1-866-NHL-CANES. Single-game Hurricanes tickets for all November games are available at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center, CarolinaHurricanes.com, by calling 919-834-4000 and all Ticketmaster outlets.
