The Hurricanes made a pair of signings Tuesday morning, agreeing to terms with both David and Jason Cotton.
A Texas native, David spent one year in the USHL before going to college, logging 30 points (15g, 15a) in 48 games for the Waterloo Black Hawks in 15-16.
Jason, the 25-year-old brother of David, was an undrafted free agent coming out of college. After logging eight games as a freshman at Northeastern in 2015-16, the 6-foot-3 forward spent three seasons at Sacred Heart University, where he racked up 81 points (41g, 40a) in 110 games. Jason’s senior season saw him lead his team with 37 points in 34 games and tie for sixth in the country with 20 goals, propelling him to be named a Hobey Baker Award Finalist and his conference’s Player of the Year.
Jason also spent two seasons in the USHL where he recorded 17 points (7g, 10a) in 73 games for Tri-City and Youngstown.
Both of the brothers’ contracts – a two-year entry-level deal for David and a one-year entry-level deal for Jason – begin with the 2020-21 season.
