- The Carolina Hurricanes have plucked of one of the last significant unrestricted free agents available.
- The Canes have agreed to terms with forward Ryan Dzingel on a two-year contract with an average annual value of $3.375 million, the team announced Friday.
- Dzingel is fresh off a career year. The 27-year-old tallied 26 goals and 56 points over 78 games in 2018-19, splitting time between the Ottawa Senators and Columbus Blue Jackets.
“Ryan has proven that he can be an impact player offensively, putting up bigger numbers over each of his three full-time NHL seasons,” Don Waddell, president and general manager of the Hurricanes, said in a press release.
“His speed, skill and vision make him an excellent fit for our forward group and our style of play. At 27, he’s just entering his prime and certainly had options coming off a 26-goal season, so we’re happy he’s chosen to be a part of the Carolina Hurricanes.”
Ryan Dzingel signs with the Hurricanes, two years, $6.75 million.
