RALEIGH, N.C. - Chad LaRose has signed a two-year deal worth US$3.4 million to stay with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The team announced the signing Wednesday, two days before LaRose was due to become an unrestricted free agent.

LaRose will make $1.5 million this season and $1.9 million in 2012-13. The popular right winger made $1.9 million last season.

General manager Jim Rutherford calls LaRose "one of my favourite players" and says he hopes he is "a lifelong player with the organization."

LaRose had 16 goals and 15 assists last season while matching his career high with 31 points.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
