The Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday signed forward Zach Boychuk to a one-year, two-way deal that will pay him $550,000 on the NHL level or $105,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level for the 2013-14 season.

Boychuk, 23, Carolina's first-round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, split the 2012-13 season between Carolina, Pittsburgh and Nashville on the NHL level and Charlotte in the AHL.

He ranks second all-time among Checkers skaters in goals (66), assists (86) and points (152).
