The Canes have signed left wing Matt Murley to a one-year contract, the team announced today. The deal will pay Murley $500,000 on the NHL level or $100,000 on the AHL level, with a minimum guaranteed total salary of $125,000.
“Matt has had a lot of success in the American Hockey League and comes with NHL experience,” said Ron Francis, assistant GM and director of player personnel. “He is a strong depth forward who is capable of contributing on the NHL level or providing leadership and production in the AHL.”
Murley, 28, split the 2007-08 season between Phoenix and the Coyotes’ AHL affiliate in San Antonio. He had one assist in three games on the NHL level, and led all Rampage skaters in goals (28), assists (41) and points (62) in 76 AHL games.
