Hurricanes reach 1-year, 2-way deals with RW Palushaj, D Jordan, G Murphy

RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with two players on one-year, two-way contracts.

The Hurricanes announced deals Thursday with right wing Aaron Palushaj and defenceman Michal Jordan.

Palushaj will make $600,000 on the NHL level or $175,000 in the minor leagues with a guarantee of at least $225,000.

Jordan will receive $550,000 with the Hurricanes or $125,000 in the minors with a guarantee of at least $150,000.

The 23-year-old Palushaj had two goals and seven assists in 25 games last season for Colorado.

Jordan made his NHL debut with Carolina last season and averaged 10:41 of ice time in five games.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
