Canes to Take Part in Prospects Tournament
RALEIGH, NC—Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes will participate in the 2009 NHL Prospects Tournament from Sept. 6-10, in Traverse City, MI. This marks Carolina’s first entry in the annual tournament, hosted by the Detroit Red Wings, and the Hurricanes’ first entry into any rookie tournament since 2005.

Jeff Daniels, head coach and general manager of Carolina’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany River Rats, along with Albany assistant coach Geordie Kinnear, will coach the Hurricanes’ team in the tournament. Teams will be comprised of drafted players and signees from each NHL club, as well as amateur tryout invitees. A limited number of players with prior minor-league experience, but in no case more than one full season, are eligible to compete. Top Hurricanes prospects Drayson Bowman, Zach Boychuk, Jamie McBain, Mike Murphy, Philippe Paradis, Brandon Sutter and Chris Terry highlight Carolina’s squad. A complete roster for Carolina’s team at the 2009 NHL Prospects Tournament can be found here.

The Hurricanes will open tournament play on Sunday, Sept. 6, against the New York Rangers at 3 p.m. Carolina then will take on tournament host Detroit on Monday, Sept. 7, at 6:30 p.m., before finishing round-robin play against Atlanta on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 3:30 p.m. Once the eight teams have finished round-robin play in two groups, each team will play a final game on Thursday, Sept. 10, to determine final tournament ranking, with the championship game taking place at 6:30 p.m. All games will take place at Centre Ice Arena, the training camp home of the Red Wings.
