Canes Agree to Terms with Michal Jordan

RALEIGH, NC—Jason Karmanos, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Michal Jordan (MIGH-kuhl johr-DAN) on a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal will pay Jordan an average of $550,000 per season at the NHL level, $60,000 per season at the minor-league level, and includes a signing bonus of $170,000. Jordan will report to the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League, and join the team for its Calder Cup Playoffs run.

Jordan, 19, completed his third season of North American major-junior hockey in 2009-10, scoring 13 goals and earning 19 assists (32 points) in 41 regular-season games with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League. The Zlin, Czech Republic, native scored 11 power-play goals in 2009-10, to rank second among all OHL defensemen in that category. Jordan (6’1”, 184 lbs.) completes his junior career having scored 31 goals and earned 71 assists (102 points) in 160 regular-season games with Windsor and Plymouth. He has represented his native Czech Republic three times at the International Ice Hockey Federation Under-20 World Championship, most recently captaining the team in the 2010 tournament. The Hurricanes drafted Jordan in the fourth round, 105th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
