Canes, McBain Agree to Terms on Two-Year Deal
McBain
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Jamie McBain on a two-year contract. The deal will pay McBain $1.7 million in 2012-13, and $1.9 million in 2013-14.

“Jamie is still a very young player who has established himself as an NHL defenseman,” said Rutherford. “He moves the puck well and has shown that he can contribute offensively, especially on the power play.”

McBain, 24, completed his third full professional season in 2011-12, leading all Hurricanes defensemen with 19 assists and 27 points. The Edina, MN, native led team blueliners with five power-play goals and was second among Carolina defensemen with 11 power-play points. McBain (6’2”, 200 lbs.) has scored 18 goals and earned 49 assists (67 points) in 166 career NHL regular-season games with the Hurricanes since turning professional following three seasons at the University of Wisconsin. Carolina drafted McBain in the second round, 63rd overall, in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
