The Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday agreed to terms with veteran center Manny Malhotra on a one-year, two-way contract. The contract will pay Malhotra $600,000 at the NHL level, or $125,000 at the American Hockey League level, with a guarantee of $250,000.

"Manny brings a level of veteran leadership to the Hurricanes organization and gives the team depth at the center position," Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said. "He has demonstrated in his career that he can be an extremely good defensive player and faceoff man."

Senators assign Pageau to AHL

Thursday, 10.31.2013 / 1:14 PM / News


The Ottawa Senators assigned forward Jean-Gabriel Pageau to the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League on Thursday.

Pageau, 20, started the 2013-14 season with Ottawa and had one goal in eight games.

He has three goals and five points in 17 career NHL games, and made a big impact in Game 3 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. His hat trick in the Senators' 6-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens made him only the second Ottawa player, after longtime captain Daniel Alfredsson, to score three goals in a playoff game. In 10 Stanley Cup Playoff games, Pageau has four goals, six points and eight penalty minutes.

Pageau was the Senators' fourth-round selection (No. 96) in the 2011 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut last season after scoring 29 points in 69 games for Binghamton.
