Jordan signed by Carolina, assigned to Albany

The Carolina Hurricanes announced they have agreed to terms with defenseman Michal Jordan on a three-year, entry-level contract.
The deal will pay Jordan an average of $550,000 per season at the NHL level, $60,000 per season at the minor-league level, and includes a signing bonus of $170,000. Jordan will report to the Albany River Rats and join the team for its Calder Cup Playoffs run.
Jordan, 19, completed his third season of North American major-junior hockey in 2009-10, scoring 13 goals and earning 19 assists (32 points) in 41 regular-season games with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League.
The Hurricanes drafted Jordan in the fourth round (105th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
The Zlin, Czech Republic, native scored 11 power-play goals this season to rank second among all OHL defensemen in that category. Listed at 6-foot-1, 184 pounds, Jordan completes his junior career having scored 31 goals and earned 71 assists (102 points) in 160 regular-season games with Windsor and Plymouth.
He represented the Czech Republic three times at the International Ice Hockey Federation Under-20 World Championship, most recently as team captain in the 2010 tournament.
