RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with right wing Tom Kostopoulos on a three-year contract. The deal will pay Kostopoulos $700,000 in 2009-10, $950,000 in 2010-11 and $1.1 million in 2011-12.
“Tom is a character player who adds grit to our lineup,” said Rutherford. “He is a strong penalty killer and plays a high-energy game that will fit our team’s style of play.”
note: How nice is it that the Canes actually released the salary structure? Too bad the majority of teams do not do this.
