Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Brendan Woods
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Vice President of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Brendan Woods on a three-year, entry-level contract. At the NHL Level, Woods will receive $600,000 in 2013-14, $650,000 in 2014-15 and $700,000 in 2015-16. At the AHL level, he would be paid $65,000 in all three years. Woods receives a signing bonus of $225,000, and will immediately join the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

“Brendan is a big, physical forward who skates well,” said Francis. “He has a good knowledge of the game and did a good job in the face-off circle during his second year at Wisconsin.”

Woods, 20, completed his sophomore season at the University of Wisconsin in 2012-13, totaling five goals and seven assists (12 points) in 41 games played. The Humboldt, Sask., native completed his collegiate career with 10 goals, 12 assists (22 points) and 83 penalty minutes in 75 games played. Woods (6’3”, 215 lbs.) was selected by the Hurricanes in the fifth round, 129th overall, of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to beginning his collegiate career with the Badgers, he spent two seasons in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with Chicago and Muskegon, earning 36 points (20g, 16a) in 91 games. Brendan’s father, Bob, played professionally in the AHL, IHL and ECHL, and currently serves as an assistant coach with the Anaheim Ducks.
