RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes agreed to terms for one-year contracts Tuesday with forward Ryan Bayda, and defensemen Tim Conboy, J.D. Forrest and Wade Brookbank.
Bayda will earn $475,000 at the NHL level or $100,000 at the American Hockey League level. Conboy will receive $495,000 in the NHL or $95,000 in the AHL, while Forrest will receive $475,000 in the NHL or $50,000 in the AHL.
