Hurricanes to Honor Whitney Nov. 1 for 1,000th Game

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team will honor Ray Whitney on Nov. 1 in celebration of the veteran forward reaching the major career milestone of 1,000 NHL games played. Whitney, who is playing his 1,000th career game tonight against the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum, will be recognized during a special pre-game ceremony prior to the Nov. 1 afternoon game against the team that drafted him, the San Jose Sharks.

In addition to the pre-game ceremony, the team is also offering 1,000 specially-priced tickets for the game, appropriately available for just $13 each. The upper-level seats will be available through all Ticketmaster outlets as well as at the RBC Center’s Time Warner Cable Box Office. They are available now, while supplies last.

Along with being the 1,000th game of his NHL career, tonight’s game also marks Whitney’s 300th regular-season game with the Hurricanes. Heading into tonight’s game, the Ft. Saskatchewan, Alb., native had totaled 306 goals and 509 assists (815 points) in 999 career NHL games with San Jose (200 games), Edmonton (9), Florida (273), Columbus (151), Detroit (67) and Carolina. In 299 games with the Hurricanes entering tonight, he ranked seventh in the team’s North Carolina history in points (280) and goals (101) and sixth in assists (179), and the Hurricanes had an all-time record of 164-110-25 with him in the lineup. Whitney, 37, is the fourth player in franchise history to reach his 1,000th game with the team, joining Rod Brind’Amour (11/15/02), Glen Wesley (1/20/01) and Brian Propp (3/2/94).
