The Carolina Hurricanes are keeping a familiar face in the fold. The club announced today that it has comes to terms with forward Zach Boychuk on a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000 in the NHL and $200,000 in the AHL.
“This will be Zach’s eighth season in our organization,” said GM Ron Francis in a release. “He’s a reliable depth forward who we know is capable of contributing offensively at either level.”
The ‘Canes drafted Boychuk 14th overall in 2008. The 25-year-old split last season between AHL Charlotte and Carolina. In 31 games with the ‘Canes, he had three goals and three assists.
