“Chad has been one of my favorite players right through his entire Compuware career, and it is my hope that he is a lifelong player with the organization,” said Rutherford. “His work ethic and locker room presence drive our team, whether it’s a game or a practice, and he excels in his role on the ice for the Hurricanes.”

LaRose is from Michigan, and I believe he played in Canes’ owner Peter Karmanos’ Compuware youth program, in addition to playing for his OHL and ECHL teams.

On another note, LaRose must be a little annoyed after signing this and seeing the kind of money Kopecky got!

I’m a huge Chad LaRose fan, but I think this is an overpayment.
