The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with forward Greg McKegg on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal is worth $715,000 at the NHL level or $250,000 in the AHL.
McKegg posted 23 points in 19 games with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers last season after being acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for forward Josh Jooris on Feb. 26, 2018. Prior to the trade, McKegg skated in 26 NHL games with the Penguins in 2017-18, netting two goals and adding two assists.
McKegg was originally selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the third round of the 2010 NHL Draft.
