Hurricanes sign former Team Canada Captain to contract

Moments ago, the Carolina Hurricanes made waves by making adding a depth signing to their roster before the trade deadline. According to reports, the Hurricanes have signed 25 year old forward Maxime Comtois.

Once a highly regarded prospect around the NHL, Comtois never really lived up to the hype he earned as a prospect in 210 career games with the Anaheim Ducks. Comtois was drafted in the second round by the Ducks in just 2017, and peaked with a 16 goal, 33 point season. After captaining Team Canada at the 2019 World Juniors, hopes were much higher for Comtois than being an NHL tweener. So far this season, Comtois has played 45 games with the AHL's Chicago Wolves with mild success.

The Carolina Hurricanes are famous for their signing of reclamation projects, so this is another iron in the fire for the team. Who knows? Maybe Comtois will be able to find success in Carolina's hard-working system and will be able to revive his NHL career on the verge of its end.
