RALEIGH, NC – Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with left wing Warren Foegele (FOE-guhl) on a three-year, entry-level contract.

“Warren had an impressive rookies’ camp last September,” said Francis. “He has continued to improve his overall game and should help Erie challenge for a championship this spring.”

Foegele, 20, established Ontario Hockey League (OHL) career highs in goals (27), assists (36) and points (63) this season, splitting the year between Kingston and Erie. The Markham, Ont., native was acquired by the Otters on Jan. 2, and has notched 16 goals and 16 assists (32 points) in 33 games for first-place Erie. His combined 27 goals ranked third among Otters skaters for the season. Foegele totaled six points (2g, 4a) in Erie’s four-game sweep of Sarnia in the first round of the 2017 OHL playoffs.

The Hurricanes’ third-round selection, 67th overall, in the 2014 NHL Draft, Foegele (6’2″. 190 lbs.) played 39 collegiate games at New Hampshire before joining the OHL, and was a teammate of Hurricanes defenseman Brett Pesce with the Wildcats in 2014-15. He totaled 111 points (40g, 71a) in 113 career OHL regular-season games with Kingston and Erie.
