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 forward Josh Jooris on a one-year contract. The deal will pay Jooris $775,000 during the 2017-18 season.

"Josh is a versatile player who can play in the middle or on the wing," said Francis. "He's hard-working and competitive, and gives us more flexibility with our group of forwards."

Jooris, 26, split the 2016-17 season between the New York Rangers and the Arizona Coyotes, totaling 12 points (4g, 8a) and 16 penalty minutes in 54 games.
