Dzingel signs two-year, $6.75M contract with Hurricanes
Centre Ryan Dzingel has signed a two-year, $6.75-million contract with the Carolina Hurricanes, the team announced Friday.
The 27-year-old put up career-highs of 26 goals and 56 points with the Ottawa Senators and the Columbus Blue Jackets last season.
The deal will pay Dzingel $3.25 million in 2019-20 and $3.5 million in 2020-21.
“Ryan has proven that he can be an impact player offensively, putting up bigger numbers over each of his three full-time NHL seasons,” Don Waddell, president and general manager of the Hurricanes, said in a press release.
“His speed, skill and vision make him an excellent fit for our forward group and our style of play. At 27, he’s just entering his prime and certainly had options coming off a 26-goal season, so we’re happy he’s chosen to be a part of the Carolina Hurricanes.”
Dzingel was acquired by the Blue Jackets at the trade deadline, putting up 12 points in his final 21 games. He added a goal in Columbus’ post-season run.
