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 left wing Carter Sandlak on a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal will pay Sandlak $550,000 at the NHL level or $55,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level in the first year, $550,000 in the NHL or $67,500 in the AHL in the second year, and $575,000 in the NHL or $67,500 in the AHL in the third year. He will also receive a signing bonus of $110,000.

“Carter is a gritty, tough competitor who is having a good year for Plymouth in the Ontario Hockey League,” said Francis. “He’s got an edge to his game and the work ethic to be a good pro.”
