RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Sergei Samsonov, a midseason waiver-wire pickup who blossomed as the right wing on Carolina's second line, signed a three-year, $7.6 million contract Wednesday to remain with the Hurricanes.

General manager Jim Rutherford said last week that re-signing Samsonov was his top priority this offseason. The 10-year NHL veteran would have been an unrestricted free agent July 1.

He will make $2.3 million next season, $2.5 million in 2009-10 and $2.8 million in 2010-11.

He had 14 goals and 18 assists in 38 games with the Hurricanes, who claimed him Jan. 8 after he was waived by Chicago.
