Hurricanes re-sign Necas; Pacioretty to have surgery



Estimated read time: Less than a minute

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes have re-signed forward Martin Necas to a two-year, $6 million contract, though new acquisition Max Pacioretty will have surgery for a torn Achilles tendon and face a six-month recovery. The team announced Necas' deal and Pacioretty's injury Tuesday. The contract will pay the 23-year-old Necas $2.5 million next season and $3.5 million for the 2023-24 season. That keeps the young forward with the franchise that picked him in the first round of the 2017 draft. The Hurricanes acquired the 33-year-old Pacioretty in July from Vegas for future considerations due to the Golden Knights' salary-cap crunch.
