Hurricanes Sign Forward Radek Dvorak
The Canes have signed right wing Radek Dvorak (RA-dehk duh-VOHR-ak) to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Dvorak $600,000 on the NHL level or $125,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000 for the 2013-14 season.
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed right wing Radek Dvorak (RA-dehk duh-VOHR-ak) to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Dvorak $600,000 on the NHL level or $125,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $250,000 for the 2013-14 season.

“Radek is an veteran player, and he has shown us throughout training camp that he can contribute to the Hurricanes,” said Rutherford. “His versatility and experience give our coaching staff a number of options with our lineup.”

Dvorak, 36, split the 2012-13 season between HC Davos of the Swiss league and the Anaheim Ducks in the NHL, totaling seven points (3g, 4a) in seven games for Davos, and four goals in nine games with the Ducks. Originally selected by the Florida Panthers with the 10th overall pick of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Dvorak has appeared in 1,200 NHL games with Florida, the New York Rangers, Edmonton, St. Louis, Atlanta, Dallas and Anaheim. The Tabor, Czech Republic, native has totaled 223 goals, 358 assists (581 points) and 408 penalty minutes in regular-season NHL action, and added seven points (2g, 5a) in 39 Stanley Cup playoff games.

Dvorak (6’2”, 195 lbs.) ranks eighth among active NHL players in games played, and has competed for the Czech Republic in a number of international competitions including the 2002 Winter Olympics, the 1999, 2001, 2004 and 2005 IIHF World Championships and the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.
