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.

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

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
