Haydn Fleury

The Carolina Hurricanes signed first-round selection Haydn Fleury to a three-year, entry-level contract General Manager Ron Francis announced Thursday.

Fleury, the seventh overall selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, signed a three-year deal worth $832,500 per season at the NHL level or $70,000 at the American Hockey League level per season. He will also receive a $277,500 signing bonus.

“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 in 70 games with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League in 2013-14, and led the team with a plus-15 plus/minus rating.
