The Carolina Hurricanes and Chad Larose have agreed to terms on a two-year deal worth $3.4 million.
Larose will earn $1.5 million next season and $1.9 million in 2012-13. His annual cap hit will be $1.7 million.
Larose was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on Friday. The 29-year-old scored 16 goals and 15 assists in 82 games for the Hurricanes last season.
The Michigan native just completed his sixth NHL season - all with the Hurricanes - and was part of Carolina's Stanley Cup-winning team in 2005-06.
