Hurricanes sign former Maple Leafs centre Jay McClement to 1-year deal

RALEIGH, N.C. - Jay McClement has left the Toronto Maple Leafs to sign a one-year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes.

McClement will make $1 million during the 2014-15 season.

"Jay is a veteran centreman who is proficient in the faceoff circle," Carolina general manager Ron Francis said in a statement. "He'll also provide elements of consistency and leadership for our club."

The 31-year-old McClement played the past two seasons for the Leafs and had 12 goals and 15 assists during his time in Toronto.

A native of Kingston, Ont., McClement led the Leafs with a faceoff percentage of 53.6 this past year.

Quote of the Day

As a player, it's obviously a sad day, but to be on the ice with some of those guys and show our respect as both teams did around center ice, it's definitely a nice touch.
