Carolina Hurricanes Work with Greensboro Generals
Marketing, Players Part of Agreement
RALEIGH, NC (Aug. 2, 2001) - The Carolina Hurricanes have committed possible players and marketing to the Greensboro Generals of the East Coast Hockey League for the upcoming 2001-2002 season.
The Hurricanes will possibly lend the Generals a goaltender and as many as two other players. This agreement will not affect Carolina's primary minor league teams--the Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League and the ECHL Florida Everblades--as the Hurricanes will continue to send its top prospects to Lowell and Florida. This agreement marks the return of the Hurricanes to the Triad region. Carolina spent the 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons playing in the Greensboro Coliseum after relocating from Hartford, Conn. The Hurricanes then moved to Raleigh and the new Entertainment and Sports Arena.
"We had some good fans in Greensboro for our first two seasons in North Carolina," said Jim Rutherford, Cheif Executive Officer and General Manager of the Hurricanes. "Our agreement with the Generals will not only help that franchise, but increase our exposure in the Triad. We're a regional team and this move will be beneficial to both teams."
Greensboro Generals President and Cheif Executive Officer, Rocco Scarfone, added, "Our relationship with the Hurricanes will improve the Generals on and off the ice for our fans and our players."
