Hurricanes agree to terms with Brett Sutter

The Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday announced they have agreed to terms with forward Brett Sutter on a one-year, two-way contract.

The deal will pay Sutter $600,000 on the NHL level or $150,000 on the American Hockey League level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000.

Sutter, 26, appeared in three games with the Hurricanes this season. He played 70 games for their AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers, registering career highs in goals (19), assists (29) and points (48). He finished second on the team in scoring.

Selected by the Calgary Flames in the sixth round of the 2007 NHL Draft, the 6-foot, 200-pound player has one goal and five points in 37 career NHL games with the Flames and Hurricanes.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
