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

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
