The Carolina Hurricanes signed defenseman Anton Babchuk on a one-year deal. The contract will pay Babchuk $1.4 million in 2010-11.
 
"We're happy to be bringing Anton back to the Hurricanes." Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said. "His has a big shot and he really came into his own offensively for us during the 2008-09 season. He will be an important contributor to our success next season."
 
Babchuk, 26, spent the 2009-10 season in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), skating in 49 games with Avangard Omsk. The Kiev, Ukraine, native led all Omsk defensemen in goals (9), points (22), power-play goals (4), game-winning goals (2) and plus/minus (+17). Babchuk (6-foot-5, 212 lbs.) also played in the 2010 KHL All-Star Game in Minsk, scoring a goal for Team Yashin, and skated in two playoff games for Omsk without registering a point.
