Canes sign F William Carrier to 6-year, $12M contract

The Carolina Hurricanes signed free agent forward William Carrier to a six-year, $12 million contract Wednesday.

The 2023 Stanley Cup champion is signed through the 2029-30 campaign.

Carrier, 29, had six goals and two assists in 39 games with the Vegas Golden Knights in 2023-24.

He finished fifth among Vegas forwards in hits (90) despite missing most of the season with an upper body injury.

“William is a physical forward who competes hard at both ends of the ice,” Canes general manager Eric Tulsky said. “He is relentless on the forecheck and difficult to play against. We’re excited to add his veteran presence to our lineup.”

Carrier has 107 points (58 goals, 49 assists) and a plus-17 rating in 413 games with the Buffalo Sabres (2016-17) and Golden Knights.
