Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton has agreed to a seven-year, $63 million deal with the New Jersey Devils. The 28-year-old Hamilton’s departure from Carolina was anticipated after he and the Hurricanes were unable to reach agreement on a new contract during the season, and was granted permission to seek a sign-and-trade elsewhere.

Hamilton joined the Hurricanes in 2018, and over three seasons he notched 121 points (42 goals, 79 assists) in 184 games while averaging 21:30 time on ice per night. His career-best 50 points in a season came with the Calgary Flames in 2016-17.
