The Hurricanes were proud to announce that 2007 third round pick, Drayson Bowman, will compete in training camp for a spot on the roster this Fall after signing his first NHL deal, a 3-year, entry-level deal worth $2.06 million.
Bowman, 19, stands 6' tall and has a 181 lb. frame, which could stand up to the punishment of the league, but he also brings good hands and good hockey sense to the table, which had impressed assistant GM, Ron Francis, according to his statement. Bowman helped lead the Spokane Chiefs to the 2008 Memorial Cup Championships and does stand to make a splash down in Raleigh.
Things are looking up for the Carolina prospects.
