Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Riley Nash
Nash
RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with center Riley Nash on a two-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Nash $550,000 on the NHL level or $135,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of $150,000 in 2013-14. It will pay him $600,000 on the NHL level and $150,000 on the AHL level, with a guarantee of at least $200,000 in 2014-15.

Nash, 24, completed his third full professional season and second in the NHL in 2012-13, establishing NHL career highs in games played (32), goals (4), assists (5) and points (9), while averaging 12:48 of ice time per game. The Consort, Alb., native netted his first career NHL goal and added a pair of assists for his first NHL multi-point game against Florida on March 2, and had his first NHL multi-goal game at Washington on March 12. Nash (6’1”, 191 lbs.) also played 51 games on the AHL level with the Charlotte Checkers, totaling 13 goals and 24 assists (37 points) and ranking second on the team in plus/minus (+14) and fourth in assists (24). His 24 assists and 37 points marked AHL career-highs, despite playing in an AHL-career-low 51 games.

Selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round (21st overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft, Nash was acquired by the Hurricanes on June 26, 2010, in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. He has totaled 10 points (4g, 6a) in 37 career NHL games with Carolina. Nash has notched 89 points (35g, 54a) in 188 career AHL games with the Checkers.
