Hurricanes sign forward Samson

Forward Jerome Samson has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes, the team announced Friday.

The deal will pay Samson $600,000 at the NHL level or $105,000 at the AHL level, with a guarantee of at least $175,000.

Samson, 24, split the 2011-12 season between the Hurricanes and Charlotte Checkers of the AHL.

He had two goals and three assists in 16 NHL games. He was second on the Checkers with 20 goals.

Samson was signed by Carolina as an undrafted free agent in July 2007.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
