Hurricanes to Recall Jakub Petruzalek
Petruzalek

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team will recall forward Jakub Petruzalek (YA-kuhb peh-troo-ZAL-ehk) from Albany of the American Hockey League (AHL) on Thursday morning. In order to make room for Petruzalek on the roster, forward Scott Walker will be placed on the injured reserve list with an upper-body injury. Hurricanes center Rod Brind’Amour will return to Raleigh and will not be available for Thursday’s game in San Jose due to a lower-body injury.

Petruzalek, 23, ranks second among River Rats skaters this season in scoring with 34 points (12g, 22a) in 47 games. Drafted by the New York Rangers in the ninth round (266th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Petruzalek has totaled 36 goals and 73 assists (109 points) in 185 career AHL games with Hartford and Albany. The Litvinov, Czech Republic, native was acquired by Carolina in 2006 in exchange for Brad Isbister, and has yet to make his NHL debut.

The Hurricanes will take on the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night at HP Pavilion at San Jose (10:30 p.m., E.T., FS Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network). Carolina’s next home game is on Thursday, Feb. 12, when the team hosts the Florida Panthers at the RBC Center at 7 p.m. For information on Hurricanes ticket packages, 1-866-NHL-CANES or visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com. Single-game Hurricanes tickets for all January and February games are available at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center, CarolinaHurricanes.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000 all Ticketmaster outlets.
