Hurricanes sign center Malone from Colorado, RFA Tlusty

Posted July 1

The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with Colorado center Brad Malone and signed winger Jiri Tlusty, Executive Vice President and General Manager Ron Francis announced Tuesday. 

Malone's deal is for two years and will pay him $600,000 for the 2014-15 season and $700,000 for the 2015-16 season. Tlusty will earn $2.95 million for the 2014-15 season for the one-year contract.

“Brad is a big, physical forward,” said Francis. “He can play either center or wing and helps improve our team’s depth up front.”

Malone, 25, appeared in 32 regular season games for the Colorado Avalanche in 2013-14, totaling three goals, two assists (5 points) and 23 penalty minutes. The Miramichi, N.B., native also made his Stanley Cup playoff debut, skating in six of the Avalanche’s seven games during their opening-round series against Minnesota. 

Colorado’s fifth selection, 105th overall, in the fourth round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Malone has totaled four goals, five assists (9 points) and 39 penalty minutes in 54 career NHL games with the Avalanche. 

Tlusty, 26, netted 16 goals and added 14 assists (30 points) in 68 games with the Hurricanes in 2013-14.

The Hurricanes also signed  goaltender Drew MacIntyre on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay MacIntyre $600,000 in the NHL or $250,000 in the American Hockey League (AHL) for the 2014-15 season, with a guarantee of at least $300,000.

“Drew had a strong season last year and provides veteran depth for our organization in net,” Francis said.

MacIntyre, 31, was 29-15-3 with a 2.53 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in 48 regular season games for the AHL’s Toronto Marlies in 2013-14.

The Montreal Canadiens signed free-agent forward and former Hurricane Manny Malhotra. The veteran center's agent says he has signed a one-year deal worth $850,000. The 34-year-old Malhotra, who has come back from a career-threatening eye injury suffered in 2011, had seven goals and six assists in 69 games with the Carolina last season.

The Washington Capitals signed former Hurricanes goaltender Justin Peters to a $1.9 million, two-year contract. The 27-year-old Peters went 7-9-4 with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage for the Carolina Hurricanes last season. He also played in six games for Charlotte of the AHL.

    Why would they not try to keep a guy like Malhotra who gives it his all every night. If that's what this team is promoting, they're not sending that message when they keep the slackers and let players who work hard go to other teams.

    I agree!!! He will be missed.

    Francis is also hamstrung by the previous GM and his lucrative financial contracts - it will take a few years to recover.

    Malone doesn't appear to be a big scorer which may contribute to the Canes 'non-scoring' woes. And Manny will really be missed......

    Hate to see Ron Francis being hamstrung by a low budget owner. Hope I'm proven wrong over time, but so far that appears to be the case.

    I see we are burning it up again. Bad draft. IMO. Everything i've read says we missed the boat on our draft picks. "D" rank. While Fluery may be good in years to come, we need to get bigger. Nick Ritchie is going to be a Brandon Shanahan. We missed him. Big strong kid that could have provided protection for Skin's. Another free agency will go by with us signing low budget deals.
