The Carolina Hurricanes signed forward Drayson Bowman to a two-year contract Monday.
The deal will pay Bowman $600,000 on the NHL level or $105,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level in the 2012-13 season. In the 2013-2014 season, he will have a one-way contract that will pay him $600,000.
Bowman, 23, split last season between Carolina and the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL. He finished with NHL career highs in goals (6), assists (7), points (13) and games played (37), earning the majority of his NHL playing time in the second half of the season.
Bowman had 13 goals and 13 assists (26 points) in 42 games with Charlotte.
