The Carolina Hurricanes are bringing in another free-agent forward, agreeing to a one-year deal with Josh Jooris.

General manager Ron Francis said Saturday that Jooris will make $775,000.

Jooris, 26, had four goals and eight assists in 54 games while splitting the season between Arizona and the New York Rangers.

The deal with Jooris was announced about 15 minutes after the Hurricanes said they struck a two-year deal with forward Justin Williams, a key member of their 2006 Stanley Cup championship team who earned the "Mr. Game 7" nickname for his 7-1 career record in them.
