Six Players to Join Hurricanes for Playoff Run

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that six of the organization’s players will be joining the team as it begins its 2009 Stanley Cup playoff run. Forwards Zach Boychuk, Patrick Dwyer and Brandon Sutter, defensemen Brett Carson and Bryan Rodney, and goaltender Justin Peters will skate and travel with the Hurricanes throughout the postseason.

The group of extra players the team carries in the postseason is affectionately known as the “Black Aces.” Though their names will not appear on the team’s regular roster, the players will gain valuable postseason experience by practicing and traveling with the team, and they are available to be added to the team’s roster if necessary. The group will take the ice at the RBC Center on Tuesday at 9 a.m. “Black Aces” skates are not open to the media, but arrangements can be made to make the players available if requested in advance.
