Tony DeAngelo Finds His NHL Home For 2023-24

One week after being jettisoned from the Philadelphia Flyers, Tony DeAngelo has found a home for next season, and, to no one's surprise, it'll be a familiar one, as he's re-signing with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Hockey Insider Frank Seravalli writes that DeAngelo will be inking a one-year deal worth $1.675M. It's a big pay cut from the contract he signed last summer with Philly, but the $3.33M buyout he received from the Flyers gets him back up to the $5M salary range he was at on his Philly deal.

The Flyers traded three draft picks to the Hurricanes last summer for the pending restricted free agent, and signed him to a 2-year, $10M contract. But his season didn't quite go as expected in the City of Brotherly Love. While he did record 42 points (11 goals, 31 assists), he was a minus-27.  DeAngelo's relationship with Flyers head coach John Tortorella devolved quickly as the season wore on. 

The Flyers tried to deal the defenseman back to Carolina around the time of the Draft back in June, but a deal never materialized. Now, as a free agent, the reunion is complete. 

The 27-year-old, in his one season with the 'Canes in 2021-22, recorded a plus-30 to go with 51 points.
