Defenceman Tim Gleason has gone full circle over the course of the last seven months, re-joining the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday on a one-year, $1.2 million contract.

"We obviously know well what Tim brings to our team on and off the ice and how he fits in our organization," said general manager Ron Francis in a statement. "We are happy that he is choosing to return to Raleigh."

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Gleason in a January trade for defenceman John-Michael Liles. Gleason was bought out by the Leafs after clearing waivers on Monday and became an unrestricted free agent.

Gleason, 31, tallied six points and 65 penalty minutes in 56 games last season.

He has 16 goals and 117 assists in 633 career NHL games with the Los Angeles Kings, Hurricanes and Maple Leafs.
