Rissanen agrees to terms with Hurricanes
The Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday agreed to terms with defenseman Rasmus Rissanen on a one-year, two-way contract for the 2014-15 season.

The Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday agreed to terms with defenseman Rasmus Rissanen on a one-year, two-way contract the team said will pay him $575,000 at the NHL level or $90,000 at the American Hockey League level in 2014-15.

Rissanen, 23, had three goals, a career-high 10 points and 91 penalty minutes in 62 games with the Charlotte Checkers in 2013-14, his third professional season. He has six goals, 25 points and 232 penalty minutes in 188 AHL games, all with Charlotte, since turning pro in 2011.

Rissanen was a sixth-round selection (No. 178) by Carolina in the 2009 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
