Canes Acquire Ryan Carter from Anaheim Ducks

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired center Ryan Carter from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forwards Stefan Chaput (sha-POOH) and Matt Kennedy.

“Ryan is an experienced player that can give us more balance down the middle and strengthen our penalty kill,” said Rutherford.

Carter, 27, has totaled three points (1g, 2a) and 22 penalty minutes in 18 games this season for the Ducks. The White Bear Lake, MN, native is averaging 10:44 per game in ice time and has won 50.3 percent of his face-offs. Originally signed by the Ducks as a free agent on July 12, 2006, Carter (6’2”, 200 lbs.) has totaled 12 goals, 17 assists (29 points) and 141 penalty minutes in 138 NHL games, all with Anaheim. He has played in 20 career Stanley Cup playoff games, earning five points (2g, 3a), and was a member of the Ducks’ 2007 Stanley Cup championship team.

Carter played college hockey at Minnesota State-Mankato (WCHA), totaling 34 goals and 24 assists (58 points) in 76 career games. He has played 89 career American Hockey League (AHL) games with Portland, earning 41 points (19g, 22a). Carter’s career statistics are below.

Chaput and Kennedy were each playing with Charlotte (AHL) this season. Chaput had three assists in 20 games played and Kennedy has notched one assist in eight games.
