Canes Agree to Terms with Haydn Fleury
The defenseman was the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Haydn Fleury on a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal will pay Fleury $832,500 per season at the NHL level or $70,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level for each season. He will also receive a signing bonus of $277,500.

“We feel very strongly that Haydn is an important part of our team’s future,” said Francis. “He performed very well at our development camp and we are looking forward to seeing him in Traverse City and during training camp in Raleigh.”

Fleury, 18, scored eight goals and earned 38 assists (46 points) in 70 games with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League (WHL) in 2013-14. He led all Rebels skaters with a plus-15 plus/minus rating despite Red Deer posting a minus-10 goal differential for the season. The Carlyle, Sask., native’s 38 assists ranked second on the team and his 46 points were good for 17th among WHL blueliners. Fleury has scored 12 goals and earned 53 assists (65 points) in 140 career WHL regular-season games with Red Deer.

In international play, Fleury (6’3”, 207 lbs.) was named Best Defenseman at the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation U18 World Championship in Finland as Team Canada captured the bronze medal. He also represented Canada at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial, helping his home country win gold, and is currently attending Canada’s World Junior Development Camp.
