Carolina Hurricanes sign Jack Drury to 3-year entry level contract

Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Jack Drury on a three-year, entry-level contract. At the NHL level, the deal will pay Drury $832,500 per season. He will earn $70,000 at the AHL level for all three seasons, and will receive $277,500 in signing bonuses.

“Jack is an outstanding two-way forward who perfectly fits our system and plays the right way,” said Waddell. “We expect him to be an important piece for the Hurricanes in the very near future.”

Prior to turning professional, Drury played two seasons at Harvard, posting 63 points (29g, 34a) in 60 collegiate games from 2018-20. The 5’11”, 174-pound forward was named Second Team All-ECAC and Second Team All-Ivy League in 2019-20 after ranking tied for sixth in goals (20) and third in power-play goals (11) among Division I skaters. In his first season with the Crimson, he was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team after leading all Harvard forwards in power-play goals (6). Drury also played for Waterloo of the United States Hockey League (USHL) from 2016-18, earning 77 points (28g, 49a) in 100 games. As the Black Hawks’ captain in 2017-18, he led all USHL skaters in both power-play goals (12) and shorthanded goals (5), becoming the first player in the USHL’s Tier 1 history to accomplish the feat.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
