The Carolina Hurricanes on Friday agreed to terms with forward Carter Sandlak on a three-year, entry-level contract.

Sandlak, 20, leads the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League with 16 goals and 24 points in 26 games.

"Carter is a gritty, tough competitor who is having a good year for Plymouth in the Ontario Hockey League," Hurricanes vice president of hockey operations Ron Francis said in a statement announcing the signing. "He's got an edge to his game and the work ethic to be a good pro."

The contract will pay Sandlak $550,000 at the NHL level in the first two seasons and $575,000 in the third season. He also will make $55,000 if he's in the American Hockey League in the first season, and $67,500 if he's in the AHL the second and third seasons. He also will receive a $110,000 signing bonus.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
