Hurricanes agree to terms with Lawson

The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with former Notre
Dame defenseman Kyle Lawson on a two-year, entry-level deal.

Lawson, selected in the seventh round of the 2005 draft,
recently completed his senior season for the Irish. He would earn
$500,000 on the NHL level and $50,000 on the American Hockey League
level in 2010-11, and $525,000 on the NHL level and $50,000 on the
AHL level the following season. He also gets an $80,000 signing
bonus.

The 23-year-old will join Carolina’s AHL affiliate in Albany for
the remainder of this season on an amateur tryout contract.
