The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with defenceman Tim Conboy and forwards Mike Angelidis and Scott Kelman.

Conboy agreed to a one-year contract that will pay him $500,000 at the NHL level and $95,000 at the AHL level. Angelidis agreed to a three-year entry-level contract that will pay him $450,000 at the NHL level in 2006-07 and $475,000 at the NHL level in 2007-08 and 2008-09. Kelman agreed to a one-year contract that will pay him $450,000 at the NHL level and $40,000 at the American Hockey League level.

''Tim brings size and toughness to our depth on the back end,'' Vice President and Assistant General Manager Jason Karmanos said. ''For a big man he is a very good skater. Mike had a very strong year as an over-age player in the OHL. He has good size, grit and character. Scott is a former first-round pick and adds depth to our organization down the middle.''

Conboy completed his second full professional season with the Cleveland Barons, American Hockey League affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, in 2005-06. He totaled six goals and 14 assists in 78 games for Cleveland, ranking third among Barons in penalty minutes.

Conboy was San Jose's sixth choice, 217th overall, in the seventh round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Angelidis completed his fourth season with Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League in 2005-06 and ranked third in the OHL in goal-scoring with 53 goals. Angelidis, who will sign with Carolina as an undrafted free agent, ranked third on Owen Sound in points, first in goals and second in penalty minutes.

Kelman split last season between the AHL and the ECHL. The Winnipeg native scored six goals and registered nine assists in 24 AHL games with Manitoba, Hershey and Lowell in 2005-06, notching 13 points in his 19 games with Carolina's prospects in Lowell.
