The Stanley Cup Champion Carolina Hurricanes have dipped into their past and have signed free agent defenseman David Tanabe to a one-year, $900,000 contract. Sources tell TSN Tanabe spent last Friday meeting with Hurricanes management and worked out for the club in an effort to prove some of the injury issues the 26 year old has struggled with are behind him. Carolina is also believed to be inching towards signing free agent forward Brad Isbister. Providing the two sides can come to terms, Isbister will help fill the void left by the absence of Cory Stillman. Stillman underwent shoulder surgery on Friday and is expected to miss up to 35 games to start the season.
