Hurricanes, Harrison Agree to Two-Year Deal

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 Jay Harrison on a two-year contract. The deal will pay Harrison $650,000 in 2011-12, and $750,000 in 2012-13.

“Jay took a big step in his pro career last year,” said Rutherford. “He brings a physical and defensive element to our blue line, and we are happy to have him back.”

Harrison, 28, established NHL career highs last season with 72 games played, three goals, seven assists, 10 points and 72 penalty minutes, while averaging 15:16 of ice time per game. The Oshawa, Ont., native finished 2010-11 with a plus-5 plus/minus rating to rank first among Hurricanes defensemen who played in more than half of the team’s games. In 130 career NHL games with Toronto and Carolina, Harrison (6’4”, 211 lbs.) has scored four goals, earned 14 assists (18 points) and accumulated 140 penalty minutes. Originally drafted by Toronto in the third round, 82nd overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Harrison signed with Carolina as a free agent on July 9, 2009.
