Canes Agree to Terms with Patrick Brown
The center served as captain for Boston College this season.

RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Vice President of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team agreed to terms with center Patrick Brown on a two-year, entry-level contract. The deal will pay Brown $575,000 in the NHL in 2014-15 and $600,000 in the NHL in 2015-16, or $60,000 in the American Hockey League (AHL) both years. He also receives a signing bonus of $130,000.

“Patrick showed tremendous leadership and character while serving as Boston College’s captain this season,” said Francis. “He has an excellent work ethic and made great strides during his college career. We look forward to his continued development as a professional.”

Brown, 21, completed his senior season at Boston College in 2013-14, ranking third among Eagles in goals (15) and fourth in points (30) in 40 games played. The Bloomfield Hills, MI, native was also third on the team in game-winning goals (4), including the game-winning goal of the Beanpot final against Northeastern. Brown (6'1", 207 lbs.) found the net in Boston College’s Frozen Four semifinal game against Union, as the Eagles ultimately fell to Union 5-4 to end their season.

Brown completed his collegiate career with 21 goals and 22 assists (43 points) in 120 games for the Eagles. During his time at Boston College, his team totaled 112 victories, one NCAA championship (2012), three Hockey East regular-season titles and two Hockey East tournament championships. Brown was a member of the Hockey East All-Academic team each of his first three seasons in Chestnut Hills. His father, Doug Brown, played 15 seasons in the NHL, capturing the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998. Patrick Brown’s grandfather was Wellington Mara, former owner of the NFL’s New York Giants.
