Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Brock McGinn

RALEIGH, NC – Jason Karmanos, Executive Vice President and Assistant General Manager for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with left wing Brock McGinn on a three-year, entry-level contract. At the NHL Level, McGinn will receive $700,000 in 2013-14, $750,000 in 2014-15 and $800,000 in 2015-16. At the AHL level, he would be paid $70,000 in all three years. McGinn receives a signing bonus of $277,500, and will immediately join the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

“Brock is a gritty, skilled forward who skates well and hits everything,” said Karmanos.

McGinn, 19, scored 28 goals and had 26 assists (54 points) in 68 games this season with the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). The Fergus, Ont., native ranked second among Storm skaters in goals and fourth in points, registering a plus-7 plus/minus rating during his third OHL season. McGinn (5’11”, 186 lbs.) tallied four points (2g, 2a) in three playoff games for Guelph, as the Storm was eliminated in the opening round by the Kitchener Rangers.

Selected by the Hurricanes in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2012 NHL Draft, McGinn has totaled 50 goals and 37 assists (87 points) and 134 penalty minutes in 169 career OHL games with Guelph, which is coached by former Hurricanes forward Scott Walker. McGinn is the younger brother of Colorado Avalanche forward Jamie McGinn, and Philadelphia Flyers forward Tye McGinn.
