Gragnani a Hurricane.

RDS.CA’s Renaud Lavoie reports the Carolina Hurricanes have signed former Canucks and Sabres defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani to a one-year, two-way, $800K contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: What a difference a year makes. Last summer, Gragnani was considered a promising part of the Sabres defense corps, but was shipped to Vancouver as part of the Cody Hodgson deal at the trade deadline, and wound up a healthy scratch during the playoffs. Should be interesting to see if he can crack the Hurricanes blueline this fall.
