Hurricanes sign Teuvo Teravainen to two-year deal
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes and forward Teuvo Teravainen have agreed to terms for a two-year deal worth more than $5.7 million.
The Hurricanes announced the deal Thursday, exactly a year after that they acquired the 22-year-old Teravainen in a trade with Chicago. He will earn $2.86 million in the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons.
Teravainen had 15 goals and 27 assists in 81 games last season, all career highs. He was also second among Hurricanes skaters with 15 power-play points.
In a statement, Carolina general manager and executive vice president Ron Francis said Teravainen is ''an important part of what we are building here.''
