TheFourthPeriod.com

The Carolina Hurricanes have signed young star forward Jeff Skinner to a six-year contract extension worth $34.35 million.

Skinner, 20, has one-year remaining on his current three-year, entry-level contract.

"Jeff is a cornerstone player for our team, and his long-term commitment to the Hurricanes is great news for our franchise and our fans," said Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. "At 20 years old, he is still in the very early stages of his career, and we felt it was important to ensure he would be spending much more of it in Raleigh."

Skinner will earn $4,350,000 in 2013-14 and $6 million per season from the 2014-15 season through the 2018-19 season.

In 64 games with the Hurricanes last season, Skinner registered 20 goals and 24 assists for 44 points.

The Toronto native was drafted seventh-overall by the Canes in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
