ESPN Insider has the updated buzz from the National Hockey League rumor mill.
The Hurricanes said Wednesday that the 14-year pro has agreed to a one-year deal worth $550,000.
The 35-year-old had seven goals and 11 assists with Boston, and has won the Stanley Cup twice with Colorado.
General manager Jim Rutherford calls Yelle "a proven winner" who "adds depth and experience to the Hurricanes at the center position."
