Canes ink another Winger: Anthony Stewart, 2 years for $1.8mil total

Just when the Hurricanes seemed to be taking a breather after their busy day Friday, we hear that they have signed UFA Wing Anthony Stewart to a two-year deal, paying him $800,000 and $1million in each. Stewart was a first round draft pick of the Florida Panthers going 25th overall in 2003. At 6-3 and 230lbs, he will be another big body many felt the Hurricanes are lacking. 

From the Full Release:

Stewart, 26, posted career highs in goals (14), assists (25), points (39) and games played (80) with the Atlanta Thrashers in 2010-11. The La Salle, Que., native finished the season ranked tied for fifth among Thrashers skaters in assists, tied for sixth on the team in goals and seventh in scoring. Stewart (6'3", 230 lbs.) has scored 18 goals, earned 33 assists (51 points) and accumulated 93 penalty minutes in 185 career NHL regular-season games with Florida and Atlanta since turning professional in 2004.

How this move fits into the depth charts and where it leaves so many of the prospects vying for a spot this October is something we will be following.

Another signing  -  in the minors

Also, a depth signing was announced earlier today. Justin Soryal, most recently of the NY Rangers AHL club in Connecticut was signed to a 3-year 2-way deal. Soryal, 24 is listed at 6-2, 206 lbs, and seems to be a typical minor league gritty forward who was not drafted and has not yet played an NHL game in his career.
