Scott Walker re-signed with the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday, agreeing to a US$7.5-million, three-year contract. He would have been unrestricted July 1. "Keeping Scott in Carolina was one of our top priorities this off-season," Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "He brings skill and grit to our forward lines and he has become one of our team's leaders on and off the ice."

Walker, 33, joined the Hurricanes in a trade last summer from Nashville. He had 21 goals and 30 assists in 81 games last season. The Cambridge, Ont., native will enter his 13th NHL season in 2007-08. In 688 career regular-season games with Vancouver, Nashville and Carolina, Walker has 127 goals, 215 assists and 976 penalty minutes.
