Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Carolina Hurricanes agreed to terms on a one-year deal with forward Jay McClement.
"Jay is a veteran centerman who is proficient in the faceoff circle," said Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis. "He'll also provide elements of consistency and leadership for our club."
The 31-year-old defensive-minded center finished last season with four goals and 10 points in 81 games for the Maple Leafs, adding a 53.7 percent success rate on faceoffs (676 wins in 1,260 draws).
Taken in the second round of the 2001 draft by St. Louis, McClement has participated in 682 games for the Blues, Colorado and Toronto and accumulated 204 points (75G, 129A).
Carolina also signed Greg Nemisz to a one-year, two-way deal. A 2008 first- round pick of the Flames in 2008, Nemisz has spent the majority of his career in the American Hockey League. He totaled eight goals and 20 points in 46 appearances for Abbotsford and Charlotte last season.
