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."

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.
