Canes Agree to Terms with Forward Chad LaRose

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 right wing Chad LaRose on a two-year contract. The deal will pay LaRose $1.5 million in 2011-12, and $1.9 million in 2012-13.

“Chad has been one of my favorite players right through his entire Compuware career, and it is my hope that he is a lifelong player with the organization,” said Rutherford. “His work ethic and locker room presence drive our team, whether it’s a game or a practice, and he excels in his role on the ice for the Hurricanes.”

LaRose, 29, ranked sixth among Hurricanes with 16 goals in 2010-11, and matched his career-high for points in a season with 31. The Fraser, MI, native was fourth on the team in hits (196), and skated in a career-high 82 games. LaRose (5’10”, 181 lbs.) played his 400th NHL game for the Hurricanes on March 29 at Washington, and has now scored at least 10 goals in each of the last four seasons.

LaRose is a product of the Compuware youth hockey system, and has played for the organization at nearly every level, including youth hockey (Compuware), junior hockey (Plymouth), the ECHL (Florida) and the NHL (Carolina). Signed by the Hurricanes as an undrafted free agent after scoring 61 goals in his final season of junior hockey with Plymouth, LaRose has totaled 64 goals, 80 assists (144 points) and 209 penalty minutes in 406 career NHL games with the Hurricanes. He has also posted four goals and eight assists (12 points) in 39 Stanley Cup playoff games, including 21 of Carolina’s 25 games during the team’s 2006 run to the Stanley Cup championship.
