Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Jiri Tlusty
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with winger Jiri Tlusty on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Tlusty $2.95 million for the 2014-15 season.

Tlusty, 26, netted 16 goals and added 14 assists (30 points) in 68 games with the Hurricanes in 2013-14. The Slany, Czech Republic, native ranked tied for fourth on the team in goals and plus/minus rating (+2) and was eighth in points. He was also second on the team in game-winning goals with a career-high five.

Selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round (13th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Tlusty (6’0”, 209 lbs.) has totaled 73 goals and 69 assists (142 points) in 344 career NHL games with Toronto and Carolina. He established career highs in goals (23) and points (38) during the shortened 2012-13 season with the Hurricanes, ranking tied for fifth in the NHL in goals that year. Tlusty has represented the Czech Republic in four major international tournaments: the 2005 and 2006 U-18 World Championships, the 2006 World Junior Championship and the 2013 IIHF World Championship.
