Canes Agree to Terms with Dennis Robertson
The defenseman recently completed his four-year career at Brown University.
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 defenseman Dennis Robertson on a two-year, entry-level contract. In the first year, the deal will pay Robertson $550,000 at the NHL level, or $60,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level. In the second year, he will earn $575,000 in the NHL, or $60,000 in the AHL, and the deal pays Robertson a $120,000 signing bonus. He will join Carolina’s AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers, for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

“Dennis had a very good collegiate career at Brown, and was consistently recognized for his play and leadership,” said Francis. “We are excited to see him begin his professional career.”

Robertson, 22, recently completed his senior season at Brown University, and was named First-Team All-Ivy and was a finalist for ECAC Best Defensive Defenseman. He served his second consecutive season as the team’s captain, and led all Bears skaters with a plus-11 plus/minus rating, 78 penalty minutes, five power-play goals and 56 blocked shots. The Fort St. John, BC, native also led team blueliners and ranked fourth on the team in scoring with 17 points (6g, 11a) while playing in 30 of Brown’s 31 games.

Following his freshman season of 2010-11, Robertson (6’1”, 215 lbs.) was named ECAC All-Rookie and Second-Team All-Ivy, the latter of which he repeated in 2011-12. After a junior season that saw him serve as Brown’s captain and lead the team in assists (17) and blocked shots (65), he was named First-Team All-Ivy. Robertson completed his four-year collegiate career with 17 goals, 53 assists (70 points), 12 power-play goals, 210 blocked shots and 267 penalty minutes in 128 games at Brown. The Hurricanes acquired Robertson from Toronto on Jan. 1, 2014, along with John-Michael Liles in exchange for Tim Gleason. The Maple Leafs drafted Robertson in the sixth round, 173rd overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
