Versteeg 'super excited' to join Hurricanes @NHL

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.

In exchange, the Canes sent north defensive prospects Dennis Robertson and Jake Massie plus a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft. It’s a trade that immediately upgrades the Hurricanes’ forward corps and adds depth just a week out from the beginning of training camp.
