RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with center Manny Malhotra on a one-year, two-way contract and placed forwards Jeff Skinner and Radek Dvorak on injured reserve.
The team announced the moves Thursday.
Malhotra will make $600,000 at the NHL level or $125,000 in the minor leagues with a guarantee of $250,000.
General manager Jim Rutherford says he gives the team depth at center and strength in the face-off circle.
That will help in Skinner's and Dvorak's absences. The team did not disclose what their injuries are but said Dvorak's placement is retroactive to Oct. 25 while Skinner's dates to Oct. 24.
The 33-year-old Malhotra played in just nine games with Vancouver last season because of an eye injury.
He has 108 goals and 170 assists in 864 games.
