The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with defenseman Trevor Carrick on a three-year, entry-level contract. The deal will pay Carrick $550,000 at the NHL level or $65,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level in the first year, $625,000 in the NHL or $65,000 in the AHL in the second year, and $700,000 in the NHL or $65,000 in the AHL in the third year. He will also receive a signing bonus of $225,000.

“Trevor had a strong training camp with the Hurricanes and has excelled in the OHL this season,” said Francis. “He has good size and toughness and has developed the offensive side of his game.”

Carrick, 19, currently ranks first among Ontario Hockey League (OHL) defensemen in goals (14) and tied for third in points (27) in 35 games played for the Mississauga Steelheads. The Stouffville, Ont., native is first among Mississauga skaters in points (27), second in goals (14), second in power-play goals (5) and third in penalty minutes (57). Carolina’s fourth-round selection, 115th overall, in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Carrick (6’2”, 180 lbs.) has totaled 30 goals, 47 assists (77 points) and 177 penalty minutes in 159 career OHL games with Mississauga.

The Hurricanes host the Washington Capitals on Friday night at PNC Arena (7 p.m. FOX Sports Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network).
