The Hurricanes announced today that they signed Defenseman Rasmus Rissanen to a three-year entry level contract.
Friend of Chasing Checkers posted a blog about him a couple of weeks ago…. you can re-read it HERE.
Rissanen was the Hurricane’s 2009 sixth round draft pick, and has spent the past two seasons with the Everett Silvertips of the WHL.
As with most end-of-year junior player signings, I would assume he will report to Charlotte. Although he is only 19, since his junior season is completed, he is eligible to play in the AHL, and can be an additional name to the Checkers clear day list.
