Hurricanes Acquire Cory Stillman from Panthers

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired left wing Cory Stillman from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Ryan Carter and a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. 

“This was a good opportunity for us to add some experience,” said Rutherford. “Cory adds more depth to our forward lines and we are familiar with what he is capable of doing offensively.” 

Stillman, 37, has seven goals and 16 assists (23 points) in 44 games this season with Florida. The Peterborough, Ont., native played for the Hurricanes from 2005 until 2008, totaling 47 goals and 102 assists (149 points) in 170 regular-season games. Stillman (6’0”, 193 lbs.) ranked second among Carolina skaters in scoring during the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs, totaling 26 points (9g, 17a) in 25 games in helping the Hurricanes capture the Stanley Cup.  

Stillman played his 1,000th career NHL game on Feb. 16 against the Philadelphia Flyers, and has tallied 273 goals and 438 assists (711 points) in 1,004 regular-season games in 16 seasons with Calgary, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Ottawa and Florida. He has 51 points (19g, 32a) in 82 career NHL playoff games, capturing the Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004 and Carolina in 2006.
