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 think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
