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 goaltender Manny Legace (LEH-gah-see) on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Legace $500,000 on the NHL level and $105,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level.

Legace, 36, has a career NHL record of 177-92-36, with a goals-against average of 2.38, a save percentage of .912 and 23 shutouts in 337 games played with Los Angeles, Detroit and St. Louis. The Toronto native is 4-6 with a 2.54 goals-against average in 11 career Stanley Cup playoff games, and served as the backup goaltender during Detroit’s run to the 2002 Stanley Cup championship. Legace’s best NHL season came in 2005-06, with Detroit, when he posted a record of 37-8-0, ranking third in the NHL in goals-against average (2.19), fifth in wins (37) and tied for second in shutouts (7). He spent each of the past three seasons with St. Louis, and was 13-9-2 with a 3.18 goals-against average in 2008-09.

Originally drafted by the Hartford Whalers in the eighth round (188th overall) of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft, Legace began the 2009-10 season with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, posting a record of 2-2 with a 3.21 goals-against average.

Legace will take the ice at practice today with the Hurricanes, and will be available to the media following the skate. The Hurricanes practice will be held at 11 a.m. at the RBC Center.
