The Carolina Hurricanes signed forward Radek Dvorak to a one-year contract.

The Carolina Hurricanes signed Radek Dvorak on Wednesday to a one-year, two-way contract that will pay the veteran right wing $600,000 on the NHL level or $125,000 on the American Hockey League level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000 for the 2013-14 season.

"Radek is a veteran player and he has shown us throughout training camp that he can contribute to the Hurricanes," Carolina president and general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "His versatility and experience give our coaching staff a number of options with our lineup."

Dvorak, 36, split the 2012-13 season between HC Davos of the Swiss league and the Anaheim Ducks. He had seven points in seven games for Davos and four points in nine games with the Ducks. He has 223 goals and 358 assists in 1,200 career games and seven points (two goals, five assists) in 39 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He has competed for his native Czech Republic in the 2002 Winter Olympics, the 1999, 2001, 2004 and 2005 IIHF World Championships and the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
