Canes Agree to Terms with Rasmus Rissanen
The defenseman completed his third full professional season in 2013-14.
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 defenseman Rasmus Rissanen on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Rissanen $575,000 at the NHL level, or $90,000 at the American Hockey League level for the 2014-15 season.

Rissanen, 23, completed his third full season with the Hurricanes’ AHL affiliate Charlotte Checkers in 2013-14, scoring three goals and earning seven assists (10 points) in 62 games. The Kuopio, Finland, native’s 10 points last season marked a career high, and his 91 penalty minutes ranked third among Checkers skaters. Rissanen (6’3”, 217 lbs.) has scored six goals, earned 19 assists (25 points) and accumulated 232 penalty minutes in 188 career AHL regular-season games with Charlotte since turning professional at the end of the 2010-11 season. Carolina drafted Rissanen in the sixth round, 178th overall, in the 2009 NHL Draft.
