Canes agree with Brown, reassign Boychuck in late-season moves

Posted April 12

— The Carolina Hurricanes agreed to terms with Boston College center Patrick Brown on a two-year, entry-level contract Saturday as part of multiple weekend roster moves late in the year.

Brown will earn $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 received a signing bonus of $130,000.

“Patrick showed tremendous leadership and character while serving as Boston College’s captain this season,” said Vice President of Hockey Operations Ron Francis. “He has an excellent work ethic and made great strides during his college career.”

Brown scored 15 goals in 40 games with Boston College this past season as a senior, leading the Eagles to the Beanpot title and Frozen Four. His father, Doug Brown, played 15 seasons in the NHL.

Also on Saturday, Carolina reassigned forward Zach Boychuk to the Charlotte Checkers. On Friday, the team announced that defenseman Andrej Sekera underwent abdominal surgery and will be off the ice for approximately six weeks.

Sekera leads all Carolina defensemen, and ranks third on the team with 44 points (11g, 33a) this season. An 8-year veteran, he also leads all Hurricanes skaters blocked shots (127) and average time on ice per game (23:40).

The Hurricanes wrap up their 2013-14 season Sunday in Philadelphia against the Flyers (99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio).

    It will be interesting to see how the exit interviews go next week, and also interesting to see who stays and who is shown the door, starting with Muller, all the way down the roster.

    Agreed. A major shake up is definitely needed at ALL levels. Some fans may hate the decisions, but it has to happen if we are ever going to get back to the post season.
    Btw... I brought you some chocolate. I ate it on the plane though... Sorry.
