RALEIGH, NC -- Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated forward Justin Williams. Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, who missed Sunday's game against Anaheim with a leg injury, has been placed on injured reserve.

Williams, 27, has missed the season's first 25 games after undergoing surgery on Sept. 18 to repair a torn right Achilles tendon. The Cobourg, Ont. native registered 30 points (9g, 21) in 37 games during the 2007-08 season, missing 45 games due to injury. Williams has earned 306 points (121g, 185a) in 459 career NHL games with Philadelphia and Carolina.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
