RALEIGH, N.C., May 1 (UPI) -- The Carolina Hurricanes Thursday rewarded Craig Adams for his best NHL season by re-signing the right wing to a one-year contract.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Adams scored had six goals and 12 assists in 81 games last season, his third in the NHL. In 158 career NHL games, he has seven goals, 13 assists, and 129 penalty minutes.
