Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Tim Gleason

Defenseman agrees to four-year contract

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Tim Gleason on a four-year contract. The deal will pay Gleason $2 million in 2008-09, $2.5 million in 2009-10, $3.0 million in 2010-11 and $3.5 million in 2011-12.

“We are very happy to get Tim signed long-term,” said Rutherford. “He is a very important player to our team and our defense going forward.”

Gleason, 25, completed his fourth NHL season and second with the Hurricanes in 2007-08, earning career highs in games played (80), goals (3), penalty minutes (84) and plus/minus (+5). The Clawson, MI, native ranked first among Hurricanes defensemen and 20th among NHL defensemen in blocked shots (107). Originally acquired by Carolina on Sept. 29, 2006, along with Eric Belanger in exchange for Jack Johnson and Oleg Tverdovsky, Gleason ranked tied for second on the team in games played (80), third on the team in penalty minutes (84) and tied for fifth in plus/minus (+5) in 2007-08.

Gleason (6’0’’, 217 lbs.) was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. In 262 career NHL games, he has totaled seven goals, 46 assists (53 points) and 239 penalty minutes. In two seasons with the Hurricanes, Gleason has notched five goals, 20 assists (25 points) and 141 penalty minutes.
