Versteeg 'super excited' to join Hurricanes @NHLdotcom

TRAVERSE CITY – While in Michigan assessing his players of tomorrow, Carolina Hurricanes Executive Vice President and General Manager Ron Francis made a move to improve his team of today, acquiring forwards Kris Versteeg and Joakim Nordstrom in addition to a third-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft from Chicago.
