Stepan takes the way to Carolina


Derek Stepan accepted a one-season contract worth $ 1.35 million with the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday.

The 31-year-old forward recorded six points (one goal, five assists) in 20 games with the Ottawa Senators last season. He missed the last 35 games of the season with a dislocated left shoulder suffered on February 23.

Stepan was traded from the Arizona Coyotes to the Senators on Dec. 26 for a second-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

“Derek is an efficient two-way rink experience center who can play in any situation,” said Carolina general manager Don Waddell. We are very happy to add another veteran to our roster. « 

Selected by the New York Rangers in the second round (51st overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Stepan amassed 485 points (168 goals, 317 assists) in 759 regular season games with the Senators, Coyotes and Rangers. He had 54 points (20 goals, 34 assists) in 106 Stanley Cup playoff games.
