The Carolina Hurricanes have signed defenseman Josh Wesley to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Wesley, 20, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2014. He’s the son of former ‘Canes d-man Glen Wesley, who is currently the organization’s director of defenseman development.
“Josh has continued to progress in his development,” said GM Ron Francis. “He played very well for Niagara in the playoffs and is ready to begin his professional hockey career.”
Wesley, like his dad, is a defensive defenseman. He only had four points in 17 playoff games, but he finished plus-8.
