LaRose Agrees Terms on Two-Year Contract
RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Chad LaRose on a two-year contract. The deal will pay LaRose $1.5 million in 2009-10 and $1.9 million in 2010-11.

“Chad has grown into a key player for our franchise,” said Rutherford. “He had his best year last season and is an important penalty killer and popular player in our locker room and with our fans.”

LaRose, 27, established career highs in games played (81), goals (19) and points (31), and matched his career-best in assists (12) in 2008-09. The Fraser, MI, native ranked tied for first among Hurricanes skaters in shorthanded goals (2), and was second in shorthanded points (4), fifth in total goals (19) and sixth in plus/minus (+6). During the Stanley Cup playoffs, LaRose (5’10”, 181 lbs.) ranked tied for second on the team in scoring (11 points) and third on the team in assists (7), skating in all 18 of Carolina’s postseason contests.

Originally signed by the Hurricanes as an undrafted free agent in August 2003, LaRose has totaled 37 goals and 48 assists (85 points) and 126 penalty minutes in 268 career NHL games with the Hurricanes. In 39 career playoff games, he has tallied 12 points (4 goals, 8 assists), capturing the Stanley Cup with Carolina in 2006.
