Defenseman Haydn Fleury, expected to take on a bigger role this upcoming season, has signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Carolina Hurricanes. Fleury, a former first-round draft pick by the Canes, will be paid $850,000, the team announced Tuesday. The Canes also signed defenseman Gustav Forsling to a one-year, two-way contract that will pay $874,125 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the AHL level. Forsling, 23, was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks with goalie Anton Forsberg in the June 24 deal that sent veteran defenseman Calvin de Haan and offensive prospect Aleksi Saarela to Chicago. With de Haan gone, Fleury is expected to join Trevor van Riemsdyk as the Canes' third defensive pairing.
