RALEIGH, NC. - Eric Tulsky, General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has re-signed forward Jordan Martinook to a three-year, $9.15 million contract extension. The deal will pay Martinook an average-annual value (AAV) of $3.05 million through 2026-27.

“Jordan is the heart and soul of our team, and he has played a pivotal role in changing the culture here over his six years as a Hurricane,” said Tulsky. “He is such a reliable presence for us both on and off the ice, and we are thrilled to keep him in Raleigh for years to come.”

Martinook, 31, earned 32 points (14g, 18a) in 82 NHL games with Carolina last season and added four points (2g, 2a) in 11 appearances during the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He ranked third in blocked shots (36) and fourth in takeaways (32) among all Hurricanes forwards during the regular season. Martinook has recorded 132 points (54g, 78a) in 394 games with Carolina since 2018-19, and he was named one of the team’s alternate captains ahead of his second season with the team.
