Casey Patrick Borer (born July 28, 1985 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an ice hockey player for the Carolina Hurricanes organization of the National Hockey League.

Playing careerEdit

Borer was recalled to the Carolina Hurricanes to play his first career game on January 2, 2008 against the Atlanta Thrashers. At the time, the Hurricanes were playing a home-and-home series against the Thrashers, and Borer scored his first NHL goal a game later, on January 4 against Kari Lehtonen of the Thrashers.

Borer, 24, has played a total of 11 NHL games for the Hurricanes this season, scoring three points (1 goal, 2 assists), recording four penalty minutes and averaging 15:17 of ice time per game. Recalled to Carolina on February 14 for the second time this year, the Minnesota native played in three games for the Hurricanes during his most recent call-up, averaging almost 29 shifts and 17:58 of ice time per game. Borer ranks third amongst Albany defensemen with 19 points (6 goals, 13 assists) and leads the team with a +19 plus/minus rating.

February 21, 2008 Casey was returned to Albany River Rats of the AHL. He was on loan for the injured Bret Hedican who was cleared for play earlier in the week.

Casey sustained a season-ending injury of his own in the March 28, 2008 match with Syracuse Crunch. He collided with Crunch Center, Trevor Frischmon. He recalls the incident, "It was the start of the period, and they didn't let the ice freeze," Borer said. "I was carrying the puck up and it got stuck in the water, and I kind of twisted back for it with my torso, and my knees didn't come with me. The guy was already lining up to hit me, and I was in a vulnerable position. My knee must have been exposed, and we just got twisted up weird." The injury led to surgery on his right knee April 7, 2008 in Raleigh, NC by team doctors from their NHL affiliate Carolina Hurricanes

In late February 2009, he again suffered a season-ending injury when his C5 cervical vertebra was broken in a team bus accident in Albany.
