RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to entry-level contracts with brothers David and Jason Cotton.

The team announced deals Tuesday with the forwards who closed college careers this season.

David Cotton, 22, has a two-year contract paying $700,000 in 2020-21 and $832,500 in 2021-22 at the NHL level. The deal will pay $70,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level in both seasons. There's also a $185,000 signing bonus. Carolina selected him in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, but he went on to play four seasons at Boston College.
