Hurricanes

Canes agree to terms with Flood, Corrente

Posted July 10, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with defensemen Mark Flood and Matt Corrente on one-year, two-way contracts. Flood’s deal will pay him $550,000 on the NHL level or $175,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $225,000. Corrente’s deal will pay him $550,000 on the NHL level or $90,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $105,000.

“Mark is a veteran defenseman with some NHL experience, who we are familiar with from being a part of our organization in the past,” said Karmanos. “Matt is a physical and versatile player capable of contributing at defense or forward. He has had some injuries the past few seasons but is 100 percent healthy now.”

Flood, 28, played for Yaroslavl Lokomotiv in 2012-13, earning six points (1g, 5a) and 25 penalty minutes in 52 regular-season games. The Charlottetown, P.E.I., native established NHL career highs in games played (33), goals (3), assists (4) and points (7) with the Winnipeg Jets in 2011-12. Selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the sixth round (188th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Flood (6’1”, 190 lbs.) has earned eight points (3g, 5a) in 39 career NHL games with the New York Islanders and Winnipeg. He spent three seasons as a part of the Hurricanes organization from 2006-09, playing for the Albany River Rats, and was a teammate of Hurricanes captain Eric Staal during his junior career with Peterborough of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Corrente, 25, appeared in 11 games with Albany (AHL) last season, earning two assists and totaling 32 penalty minutes, but missed the majority of the season due to a shoulder injury. The Mississauga, Ont., native was a first-round selection (30th overall) of the New Jersey Devils in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, and has played 34 career NHL games with New Jersey, totaling six assists and 68 penalty minutes. Corrente (6’0”, 205 lbs.) has totaled 13 goals and 36 assists (49 points) and 350 penalty minutes in 163 career AHL games with Lowell and Albany.

    Yipppppeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    So, just a thought. I guess I was not paying attention this close. Minnesota traded Devon Setoguchi to Wiinepeg for a second rnd draft pick. Wow, really? Where we're we? How awesome would he have fit on our second line with Skinner and JS? Or even on our third line with Ruutu? Instead, we traded, Mclame and our second rounder for the "FNG"!!!!
