The Carolina Hurricanes got a deal done with their lone remaining restricted free agent, inking Martin Necas to a two-year pact with an average annual value of $3 million.

Necas was coming off a three-year agreement that carried a cap hit of $863,333.

The 23-year-old will still be an RFA at the end of his new deal, but he'll have arbitration rights, a $3.5-million qualifying offer, and will be two years away from being eligible for unrestricted free agency, according to PuckPedia.

Necas collected 14 goals and 26 assists while averaging 16:11 of ice time over 78 games this past season. He was even more productive in 2021, notching 14 tallies and 27 helpers while averaging 17:17 of ice time in only 53 games during the shortened campaign.

The Czechia-born forward has played three full seasons and five in total with the Hurricanes, who drafted him 12th overall in 2017.
