RALEIGH, NC – Ron 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 Tim Gleason on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Gleason $1.2 million for the 2014-15 season.
“We obviously know well what Tim brings to our team on and off the ice and how he fits in our organization,” said Francis. “We are happy that he is choosing to return to Raleigh.”
Gleason, 31, split the 2013-14 season between Carolina and Toronto, totaling six points (1g, 5a) and 65 penalty minutes in 56 games. The Clawson, MI, native was traded to the Maple Leafs on Jan. 1 in exchange for John-Michael Liles and Dennis Robertson, after more than seven seasons with Carolina.
