RALEIGH, N.C. – The Carolina Hurricanes re-signed left winger Chris Terry on Tuesday.

The team agreed to terms with Terry on a one-year, two-way contract which will pay him $600,000 on the NHL level or $300,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level in 2014-15.

Terry, 25, played a career-high 10 NHL games in 2013-14, totaling two assists.

Highlights of his season included scoring the game-winning goal in the shootout for the Hurricanes on Nov. 15 against the Anaheim Ducks, and earning his first two NHL assists against Dallas on April 3.

Terry, the Hurricanes’ fifth round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft (132nd overall), spent the majority of the season with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers, ranking first among Checkers players in assists (41) and shots (230), and second on the team in goals (28) and points (69).

He was tied for third in the AHL in power-play points (37), sixth in scoring, tied for 10th in goals, and tied for 11th in assists.

Terry has appeared in 13 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, totaling one goal and two assists (3 points), represented the Checkers at the 2012 AHL All-Star Classic, and has served as an alternate captain for Charlotte during the past two seasons.
