Hurricanes ink defenseman Dennis Robertson to entry-level deal

Posted March 20

— The Carolina Hurricanes have signed defenseman Dennis Robertson to a two-year entry-level contract, the team announced Thursday. 

At the NHL level, Robertson, 22, will earn $550,000 in the first year of the deal and $575,500 in the second. At the AHL level, he will earn $60,000 in both years. Robertson also received a $60,000 signing bonus. 

Robertson, who was acquired by the Hurricanes on Jan. 1 in a trade that sent Tim Gleason to Toronto, will join the Charlotte Checkers for the remainder of the 2013-14 season. 

"Dennis had a very good collegiate career at Brown and was consistently recognized for his play and leadership," Ron Francis, vice president of hockey operations for the Hurricanes, said in a statement. "We are excited to see him begin his professional career."

Robertson was named first-team All-Ivy and was a finalist for ECAC Best Defensive Defenseman in 2013-14 at Brown. He was Brown's captain and tallied 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) during the season.

The Hurricanes return to the ice in Chicago Friday at 7 p.m. for a matchup with the Blackhawks.
