Undrafted Hurricane signs three-year entry-level NHL contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins after strong camp
After going undrafted this summer, Jordy Bellerive is now property of a National Hockey League team.
On Saturday, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced they had signed the Lethbridge Hurricanes forward to a threeyear, entry-level contract after a stellar showing at the team’s rookie camp.
Bellerive, 18, led the Penguins at the Prospects Challenge in Buffalo with four goals and seven points in the three games.
The Hurricanes second overall pick in the 2014 Western Hockey League bantam draft led the team with multiple points every game and scored a hat trick against the New Jersey Devils. He also participated in the Penguins' prospect development camp in July.
The five-foot-10, 194-pound product of North Vancouver scored a combined 92 points (38 goals and 54 assists) in two seasons with the Hurricanes, including 27 goals last season.
Bellerive added seven goals and 14 points in 20 games during the Hurricanes run to the Eastern Conference finals.
He is currently skating in the Penguins main camp.
