Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Dwight Helminen

RALEIGH, NC—Ron Francis, Assistant General Manager and Director of Player Development for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with forward Dwight Helminen. The deal will pay Helminen $475,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the minor-league level in 2008-09.

“Dwight had two good seasons with Hartford in the American Hockey League before scoring 20 goals in Finland last year,” said Francis. “He adds depth to our organization at the forward position.”

Helminen, 25, scored 20 goals and earned 25 assists (45 points) in 52 games with JYP Jyvaskyla of Finland’s SM-Liiga in 2007-08. Prior to playing in Finland, the Hancock, MI, native totaled 47 goals and 47 assists (94 points) in 157 regular-season games over two seasons with the Hartford Wolfpack of the AHL. Helminen (5’10”, 191 lbs.) played three seasons at the University of Michigan prior to turning professional in 2004-05, splitting that season between Hartford and the Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL. The Edmonton Oilers drafted Helminen in the eighth round, 244th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
