— Teuvo Teravainen agreed on a two-year contract with the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday that will pay the forward $2.86 million per season in 2017-18 and 2018-19.

“Teuvo is a highly-skilled player and an important part of what we are building here,” Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager said. “He’s still a very young player and we look forward to seeing him take the next step in a Hurricanes uniform.”

Teravainen, 22, played in 81 games last season for the Canes recording 15 goals and 27 assists. He ranked second among Hurricanes skaters in power-play points (15).

Teravainen was originally selected by the Blackhawks in the first round, 18th overall, of the 2012 NHL Draft, and came to Carolina as part of the Bryan Bickell trade in 2016.
