Back To Raleigh: Joe Corvo Signs Two-Year Deal With Hurricanes

Dealt to the Washington Capitals during last year's trade deadline, Joe Corvo has re-joined the Carolina Hurricanes under a two-year contract. The defenseman will receive $2 million in 2010-2011 and $2.5 million in 2011-2012. Corvo, who was exchanged for Brian Pothier, Oskar Osala and a 2011 second-round draft pick, had six points in 18 games with the Capitals and two more points in the postseason.

Per TSN:

"Joe has been a really good player for us over the last three seasons, and we feel that this solidifies our defense," said Carolina president and general manager Jim Rutherford. "We appreciate him working with us to get this deal done. He said that he really wanted to stay in Carolina and this commitment confirms that."
