Even with the summertime news being slow, the official Carolina Hurricanes sources have been dropping the ball. I had to learn from a TSN.ca email that the Hurricanes have signed last year’s fourth round draft selection Justin Shugg to a three-year entry-level contract. Yesterday. Still no word of it on the official site or from the News & Observer, save a tweet from Chip Alexander.
According to capgeek, which says that the numbers aren’t official, the deal will pay Shugg $600k at the NHL level or $60k at the AHL level in 2011-12, and $625k NHL / $65k AHL for each of the next two seasons. There is also a $225k signing bonus, which is spread over three years. The cap hit will be $616,667 in all three years.
