Chris Terry has had an illustrious AHL career with the Carolina Hurricanes organization, but the 25-year-old forward has not been able to translate that success to the NHL as of yet.
In 375 American Hockey League games, Chris Terry has tallied 120 goals and 179 assists (299 points). Terry also has 19 points in 29 career playoff games in the AHL.
Chris Terry’s minor league career has been pretty impressive, but he has just 4 points (1 goal, 3 assists) in 13 NHL games with the Carolina Hurricanes. That brings up the big question of if it is worth still re-signing him.
Though Chris Terry has not been able to stick in the NHL, he has been a decent minor league call-up for the Carolina Hurricanes.He has been able to play some power play time, provide decent offense, and he has shown the capability of being a shootout wizard.
Chris Terry has been a valued member of the Charlotte Checkers for years, so it may be worth it just to give him another deal so he can produce at the minor league level. Being 25-years-old, Chris Terry still has a chance of breaking into the NHL at some point in the future.
Re-signing Chris Terry is relatively risk free, so I don’t see a bad side of bringing him back into the fold. He can be an emergency call-up, but the Carolina Hurricanes may also want to look for other options as a call-up option. That being said, Ron Francis may want to go in a different direction with Terry.
All things considered, I think the Carolina Hurricanes should re-sign Chris Terry.
