The Carolina Hurricanes are adding a pair of brothers to their system.

The team agreed to terms with forwards David and Jason Cotton on entry-level contracts, the Hurricanes announced Tuesday.

"David and Jason both had very productive senior seasons this year," Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell said. "We've been pleased with David's progress over his four years at Boston College, and his brother Jason was recently named a Hobey Baker Award finalist. We're excited to see what they can accomplish at the professional level."

David, 22, signed a two-year contract that will pay $700,000 in 2020-21 and $832,500 in 2021-22 at the NHL level. He posted 15 goals and 39 points in his senior year at Boston College while serving as the team's captain. He was originally selected by the Hurricanes in the sixth round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

Jason, 25, signed a one-year contract for the 2020-21 season that will pay $700,000 at the NHL level. He was named a Hobey Baker Award finalist after recording 20 goals and 37 points with Sacred Heart University this season. He also served as his team's captain and was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year.
