Biega
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 Danny Biega on a three-year, entry-level contract. At the NHL Level, Biega will receive $625,000 in 2013-14, $675,000 in 2014-15 and $725,000 in 2015-16. At the AHL level, he would be paid $67,500 in all three years. Biega receives a signing bonus of $240,000, and will immediately join the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Biega, 21, completed his fourth season at Harvard in 2012-13, totaling 11 points (2g, 9a) and 43 penalty minutes in 32 games, while serving as the Crimson’s team captain. The Montreal native concluded his collegiate career with 28 goals, 57 assists (85 points) and 165 penalty minutes in 132 games. The Hurricanes’ third-round selection, 67th overall, in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Biega (6’0”, 200 lbs.) was named an NCAA East First-Team All-American and was selected to the ECAC First All-Star Team after establishing career highs in assists (25) and points (35) during his junior season in 2011-12. He was twice named first-team All-Ivy League, and was Harvard’s Most Valuable Player during his sophomore season in 2010-11, when he led the team in points (30) and assists (19), and ranked tied for second on the team in goals (11).
