The Carolina Hurricanes have signed veteran centre Drew Shore to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Wednesday.

The deal is worth $700,000 in the NHL or $150,000 in the AHL.

“Drew is a veteran player who adds to our organization’s depth down the middle,” said general manager Don Waddell said in a press release.

Shore, 29, split the 2019-20 season between Minsk and Nizhny Novgorod of the KHL, recording 27 points in 43 games.

The 2009 second-round pick (44th overall) has also had stints in the NHL with the Florida Panthers, Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks, totalling 26 points in 94 career games.
