RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with a pair of their own pending free agents.

General manager Ron Francissaid Wednesday that forward Brock McGinn has agreed to a two-year contract and defenseman Philip Samuelsson received a one-year, two-way deal.

McGinn, 23, will make $875,000 this season and $900,000 in 2018-19. He had seven goals and nine assists in 57 games the past season with the Hurricanes and was a restricted free agent.
