RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Center Victor Rask and the Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a six-year contract worth $24 million.

General manager Ron Francis said Tuesday the deal will pay Rask $4 million per year through 2021-22. Rask was a restricted free agent this offseason.

Francis says Rask has ''gotten better every season that he's been a part of our organization'' and called him a ''big part of this team's present and future.''

The 23-year-old had 48 points this season - the most in his career and the second most on the team - with 21 goals and 27 assists in 80 games. He led the team with 18 points on the power play, with five goals and 13 assists with the man advantage.
