RALEIGH, N.C. - Erik Cole is staying in Carolina.

The Hurricanes re-signed the free-agent winger to a US$5.8-million, two-year deal on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old had 18 goals and 42 points in 80 games last season.

He briefly became an unrestricted free agent before agreeing to terms with the Hurricanes.
