RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Joakim Nordstrom and the Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension.

The team also said Friday that it reached a deal with defenseman Jake Chelios on a one-year, two-way contract.

Nordstrom had 10 goals and 14 assists in 71 games this season for the Hurricanes, who acquired him in September in a trade with Chicago.

The forward will make $1.25 million this season and $1.3 million in 2017-18. He would have been a restricted free agent this summer.

Chelios is the son of Hall of Famer Chris Chelios. He led the Hurricanes’ minor-league team in Charlotte with 73 games played and had seven goals and 24 assists.

He will make $575,000 at the NHL level or $70,000 in the minors this season.
