Hurricanes reach 1-year deals with free agents Mike Komisarek, Anton Khudobin

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes and veteran defenceman Mike Komisarek have agreed to a one-year deal worth $700,000.

The team announced the move Friday, about 30 minutes after teams were allowed to start signing free agents.

One of the Hurricanes' top priorities this off-season was their defence. Earlier this week, they picked up defenceman Andrej Sekera in a draft-day trade with Buffalo for defenceman Jamie McBain.

The 31-year-old Komisarek played just four games for Toronto last season and spent part of the year in the minor leagues. The Maple Leafs made him a free agent by buying out the final year of his contract.

He has 14 goals and 63 assists in 519 career games with Toronto and Montreal.

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
