Hurricanes sign Pitkanen, Dwyer
Question of the Day
The Hurricanes announced the deals three days before the players could have become unrestricted free agents.
Pitkanen, 27, led Carolina defensemen last season with 30 assists. He made $4.5 million last season and remains the team’s highest-paid defenseman. The Hurricanes earned points in the standings in 26 of the 30 games in which he had either a goal or an assist.
“Joni has been a very important part of our defense as he plays in all situations,” general manager Jim Rutherford said. “He plays a lot of minutes, and is one of the top puck movers in the league. We are very pleased that he wanted to return to the Hurricanes.”
Dwyer, 28, made $500,000 last season and had career highs of eight goals, 10 assists and 80 games played.
