General manager Don Waddell said Tuesday that Martinook's extension will begin next season.
Great way to cap off one of the best weeks of my life. My family and I are so excited to be staying in Raleigh for 2 more years. Great things are coming from this team and I'm so happy to be apart of it @NHLCanes— Jordan Martinook (@Martyman17) January 29, 2019
The 26-year-old has 10 goals and three assists in 50 games while leading the team with 125 hits and blocking 28 shots -- the most by a Carolina forward.
The Hurricanes acquired him in May from Phoenix in the deal that sent center Marcus Kruger to the Coyotes. Martinook is making $1.85 million this season and would have been a restricted free agent on July 1.
It's the second extension the Hurricanes have awarded to a forward in a little over a week, also having agreed to a five-year, $27 million deal with Teuvo Teravainen on Jan. 21.
