The Carolina Hurricanes and center Riley Nash agreed to terms Tuesday on a two-year, two-way contract that will pay Nash $550,000 on the NHL level or $135,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of $150,000 in 2013-14.

Nash will also make $600,000 on the NHL level and $150,000 on the AHL level, with a guarantee of at least $200,000 in 2014-15.

Nash, 24, played in 32 games in 2012-13, scoring four goals and adding nine assists. The Consort, Alb., native netted his first career NHL goal and added a pair of assists for his first NHL multi-point game against Florida on March 2, and had his first NHL multi-goal game at Washington on March 12.

The 6-foot-1 Nash also played 51 games on the AHL level with the Charlotte Checkers, totaling 13 goals and 24 assists (37 points) and ranked second on the team in plus/minus (+14) and fourth in assists (24). 

Selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round (21st overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft, Nash was acquired by the Hurricanes on June 26, 2010, in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.
