Canes Re-Sign Broadcasters to Multi-Year Contracts
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed its three broadcasters to new, multi-year contracts.

“John, Tripp and Chuck have been mainstays of the Hurricanes for a long, long time,” said Rutherford. “Most of our young fans have grown up with their voices describing the game, and we are very pleased that they will each continue in their roles moving forward.”

John Forslund will begin his 18th season as the team’s television play-by-play voice in 2012-13, and his 22nd season with the Hurricanes organization. Former professional goaltender Tripp Tracy will join Forslund as color analyst for the duo’s 14th season together, calling the team’s games on FOX Sports Carolinas.

Chuck Kaiton continues at the franchise’s only radio play-by-play man since it entered the NHL in 1979. Kaiton’s radio calls can be heard on the Hurricanes Radio Network, and its flagship station, 99.9 FM The Fan.
