Charlotte, N.C. — Chad LaRose took his next step toward a return to the NHL Tuesday as he agreed to an AHL contract with the Charlotte Checkers.

Larose, 32, played eight seasons in the NHL, all with the Hurricanes, before sitting out last season. In 508 career games, he has recorded 180 points and 286 penalty minutes. He was also part of the 2006 Stanley Cup-winning team.
