Hurricanes To Retire Wesley's Jersey Number

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes will retire Glen
Wesley's jersey number in February.

The Hurricanes announced that they will raise the veteran defenseman's No. 2 to the rafters of the RBC Center on Feb. 17 before their game against the Boston Bruins.

Wesley was the last of the original Hurricanes, the only player to play in each of the 10 seasons since the team moved to North Carolina. He retired last month, ending a career that included 20 seasons in the NHL and 13 with the Hurricanes franchise.

The Bruins are a fitting opponent because they drafted Wesley in 1987.
