The Carolina Hurricanes have been very busy the past few days. Yesterday they announced the commitment of the UFA center Derek Stepan. Today there is more of it, because they have signed another UFA, this time a winger in Stefan Noesen.
The deal is $ 750,000 in the NHL, $ 250,000 in AHL salary and $ 300,000 guaranteed. While top players like Dougie Hamilton, Seth Jones and Zach Hyman have all hit their paydays, the flat-cap depth has left players in the dust.
Noesen is a skilled fourth-row winger with over 200 games NHL experience. He is in the prime of his career and still had to accept a cut from last year’s salary of $ 925,000 in Toronto / San Jose.
The 28-year-old winger appeared in six NHL games in 2020/21.
