RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have signed general manager Ron Francis to a contract extension through the 2018-19 season, the team announced Tuesday.Financial terms were not disclosed.I appreciate the fact that (owner Peter Karmanos Jr.) is willing to give me the extension, Francis said. Were going in the right direction, so its exciting to help continue that.Francis, 53, is a Hall of Fame player beginning his 11th season in a management role with the Hurricanes and his third since taking over for Jim Rutherford as general manager. Hes led the youth movement that helped the Hurricanes improve 15 points in the standings last season, trading captain and franchise face Eric Staal while reshaping the team around a core of younger players.Ron has rebuilt our organization the right way, stocking our team and system with young players who will help this franchise compete for the Stanley Cup year in and year out, Karmanos said. Im thrilled that he will continue to see the job through. The future is very bright for the Hurricanes in Carolina.With the move, the Hurricanes have locked up two key management figures this summer. In July, they signed coach Bill Peters to an extension, also through 2018-19.Francis said after he finished Peters extension, Karmanos approached him and said now I want to take care of you.He sat down and said, This is what Id like to do, Francis said. And I said, OK, Pete, thats fair. It was just a matter of getting things signed.Francis also said forward Raffi Torres will try out for the team when camp begins in September.Torres hasnt played a regular-season game in the NHL since 2013-14, and last October was suspended for 41 games -- the longest suspension in NHL history for a hit on another player -- and fined $440,000 for his illegal check on Anaheims Jakob Silfverberg during a preseason game.You all know the way I played the game -- I dont condone those kinds of hits, and I think they were dealt with the right way, Francis said. Hes served his time, hes forfeited his money and hopefully hes in a different place. ... Its not a contract. Its a tryout. He has to earn a contract. He has to earn a spot in our lineup.

Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. In the days when Australias cricket team were all-conquering, Adam Gilchrist was frequently referred to as the sides allrounder, for his batting carried that kind of weight. On his recall to the national side in far grimmer times, Matthew Wades allround responsibilities appear to be threefold: batting, wicketkeeping and presence.While Wade insists that his glove work has gone up a notch or three since he was dropped for Brad Haddin ahead of the 2013 Ashes series, ending a run of 12 Tests behind the stumps, he also acknowledged his role around the team will be much more multifaceted than simply adding to his tally of dismissals. At a time when Australian batting could not be at a lower ebb, Wade must bring plenty of runs, after the fashion of his two commendable Test hundreds against the West Indies and Sri Lanka. In particular he must help to fashion lower-order partnerships to extract more value from the home sides tail - something he enjoys.I enjoy that part of the game, I enjoy the scrap, Wade said on Monday. I enjoy getting out there when our backs are to the wall. Hopefully that doesnt come in this Test, but if it does Im looking forward to getting out there and having a scrap, yeah.That liking for a scrap has not always paid off for Wade. He has got himself in trouble on the field for aggressive verbal exchanges, most recently in South Africa during the ODI series that preceded these Tests. But in the wake of the captain Steven Smiths plea for cricketers prepared to fight for the national team cause, a more pugilistic presence behind the stumps has helped push Wade ahead of Peter Nevill.I think I just bring what I bring for Victoria week in, week out, he said. Obviously Ive been picked for a reason and Ill just come and play my way. Ive been picked to come in and be a bit of a presence hopefully I suppose. I feel like being around one day international team for a while I can really lead as well.Ive been around for long enough it doesnt feel like Im coming in for my first game. I can come in and contribute and help the leaders out on the field. I dont go into any game looking to really get into anyones head. I just go out and play the way that I play.Im competitive. I like the contest. If an opportunity comes where I feel like I can contribute in that way to get benefit for the teeam then I will.dddddddddddd I certainly dont go out looking to target people, it just develops out on the ground.Underpinning all this will be Wades effectiveness or otherwise behind the stumps. Intriguingly, he has not worked specifically with any one mentor to improve his technique, whether it be footwork, softer hands or anticipation. But he acknowledges now that it was the art of wicketkeeping that got away from him at the time he was dropped from the Test side, meaning that much more emphasis on it this time around.Theres no doubt when I played Test cricket last time my wicket keeping was not where it needed to be so Ive worked hard on it and improvements have come, he said. So I feel confident in my game that I can make a contribution in the team. Thats what its all about.The good thing about wicket keeping is that everywhere you go generally you find a keeper. Ive done work with Heals [Ian Healy], Ive done work with Rod [Marsh], Ive done work with Tim Coyle. Ive worked with everyone. But in the end when youre out there and things arent going well youve got to try and work it out yourself and if you dont know your game 100% its going to be hard to get back.I just needed to keep better that was basically it. Three years ago was a long time ago so hard to remember exactly what the selectors told me at that time. But I knew I needed to work on my keeping at that stage, it was no surprise I was out of the team. But Ive worked hard on it and Im confident in it that I can contribute. Its not about my wicket keeping or my batting. Its about trying to find a way as a team to get some wins out.Winning culture is something Australia desperately need right now, in whatever form it takes. As Victorias captain, Wade has helmed consecutive Sheffield Shield triumphs for his state and just yesterday helped oversee a crushing win for the Bushrangers over their longtime rivals New South Wales at the SCG. It all helps.Ive played enough first-class cricket now and been around the Australian setup long enough to feel like I can go out and lead, he said. Whether its helping young guys, or helping the more experienced guys. Whatever the team needs, Ill be there to help out. ' ' '
