Gleason returns to Carolina, inks 1-year deal

The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent defenseman Tim Gleason on a one-year, $1.2 million contract.

Gleason, 31, was traded from Carolina to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 1 in exchange for John-Michael Liles and Dennis Robertson.

"We obviously know well what Tim brings to our team on and off the ice and how he fits in our organization," said Hurricanes GM Ron Francis. "We are happy that he is choosing to return to Raleigh."

In 56 games last season with the Hurricanes and Leafs, Gleaason picked up one goal, five assists and 65 penalty minutes.

Selected by the Ottawa Senators in the first round, 23rd overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Gleason has tallied 16 goals and 117 assists for 133 points in 633 career NHL games with Los Angeles, Carolina and Toronto.
