HURRICANES RECALL CRAIG MACDONALD FROM LOWELL OF THE AHL

SVOBODA INJURED AGAINST BOSTON ON THURSDAY NIGHT

RALEIGH, N.C. (Nov. 22, 2002) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager for the Eastern Conference champion Carolina Hurricanes announced today that the team has recalled forward Craig MacDonald from Lowell of the American Hockey League as an emergency recall. Hurricanes forward Jaroslav Svoboda suffered a strained back injury during Thursday night’s game against the Boston Bruins at the FleetCenter.

MacDonald (6’1’’, 195 lbs.) has 10 points (3g, 7a) in 11 games with Lowell this season. He played in 23 games with the Hurricanes during the 1998-99 and 2001-02 seasons, notching his first career point with an assist against Florida on March 21, 2002 and his first career NHL goal on April 12, 2002 at Florida. In 23 career NHL games, he has two points (1g, 1a) and 0 penalty minutes. A native of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, MacDonald also played in four games during the 2002 Stanley Cup Playoffs for Carolina. The franchise’s fourth pick, 88th overall, in the third round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, MacDonald played college hockey at Harvard University and was a teammate of Hurricanes forward Craig Adams, Vice President and Assistant General Manager Jason Karmanos and Television Color Analyst Tripp Tracy with the Crimson.

MacDonald will be available for the Hurricanes’ game on Saturday night against the Montreal Canadiens.
