CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - President and GM of the Hurricanes, Don Waddell, announced today that the team has signed Patrick Brown to a one-year, two-way contract.
"Patrick served as captain in Charlotte again last season and was the heart and soul of the team," said Waddell. "He is a tremendous leader on and off the ice and is a reliable, hard-working player. We are excited to keep him in the organization again next season."
The deal guarantees at least $190,000 and will pay Brown $650,000 on the NHL level or $100,000 on the AHL level during the 2018-19 season.
Brown set AHL career highs in assists and power play goals last season and ranked fourth on the team in plus/minus. He also registered 27 points in 68 games with the Charlotte Checkers in 2017-18.
