RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired center Luke Pither (PIH-tuhr) from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for goaltender Brian Boucher and defenseman Mark Alt. Pither will be assigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Pither, 23, has totaled 25 points (11g, 14a) and 18 penalty minutes in 35 games with Trenton and Wheeling of the ECHL this season. The Burketon, Ont., native signed as a free agent with the Flyers on March 4, 2010, after totaling 250 points (104g, 146a) in 307 games during a five-year Ontario Hockey League (OHL) career with Kingston, Guelph, Belleville and Barrie. In two seasons with Adirondack of the American Hockey League (AHL), Pither (6’0”, 186 lbs.) has notched 30 points (11g, 19a) in 106 games.


* Looks like with Boucher going back to Philly, Justin Peters will be driving the 3hrs to Raleigh to back up Ward for the season.

Not surprised, with Ellis signed and Muse good enough to be playing in the AHL, there was just no room for Boucher

Got to see Ellis in net last Sunday when the Checkers played against the Norfolk Admirals at the PNC Arena.

He looked really good and has been consistent this season, so with Peters coming to Raleigh the Checkers are still in good hands.

Completely read over Mark Alt was a part of this deal, ol' JR getting rid of all our defensive prospects, not really digging this deal now.
