RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Jiri Tlusty has signed a two-year contract worth $3.2 million to stay with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The team said Tuesday that Tlusty agreed to a deal that will pay him $1.5 million next season and $1.7 million in 2013-14.

The 24-year-old forward had career highs this season with 79 games, 17 goals, 19 assists and 36 points. He could have become a restricted free agent July 1, meaning the team had the right to match any offers he received.

General manager Jim Rutherford says Tlusty "showed that he can contribute as a top-end NHL forward."
