Boston College senior free agent forward Patrick Brown has signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Brown, the son of former NHL forward Doug Brown, is a 6-1 197 lbs. power forward that captained the Eagles this season. He was fourth on the Eagles in scoring this season, trailing only the three tremendous players on Boston College's top line, with 15 goals and 15 assists. Brown provided a big body that was willing to bang in front of the net and create space for the offensive players around him on the Boston College power play. 10 of his 30 points this season came via the man advantage.
The Hurricanes also cited Brown's work ethic and leadership qualities as big reasons why they offered him a contract.
