Hurricanes Buy Out Frantisek Kaberle

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Hurricanes have bought out the remaining year of defenseman Frantisek Kaberle’s contract. Kaberle was slated to make $2.2 million in 2009-10, but will now collect two-thirds ($1,467,400) of that amount over the next two seasons.

“This move is part of our effort to restructure the Hurricanes’ defense to become bigger and more physical,” said Rutherford. “We thank Frank for his contributions to the Hurricanes, especially the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in 2006.”

Kaberle, 35, scored nine goals and earned 73 assists (82 points) in 214 regular-season games with the Hurricanes from 2005-06 to 2008-09. The Kladno, Czech Republic, native notched the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, helping the Hurricanes capture the first championship in franchise history. Kaberle (6’0”, 190 lbs.) has scored 29 goals, earned 164 assists (193 points) and accumulated 218 penalty minutes in 523 career NHL regular-season games with Los Angeles, Atlanta and Carolina. The Kings originally drafted Kaberle in the third round, 76th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. The Hurricanes signed Kaberle as a free agent on July 15, 2004.
