RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have signed defenseman Tim Gleason to a four-year contract extension worth $16 million.

The team said Monday that the deal keeps Gleason under contract through the 2015-16 season. He could have become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

He will make $3.5 million in the first and last years of the deal, and $4.5 million in both 2013-14 and 2014-15.

General manager Jim Rutherford says Gleason is "one of our core players" both on and off the ice.

The 29-year-old leads the team's defensemen with 87 hits and a plus-minus rating of plus-2. He is making $3.5 million this year.
