The Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday announced they had agreed to terms with defenseman Dennis Robertson on a two-year, entry-level contract.

In the first year, the deal will pay Robertson $550,000 at the NHL level, or $60,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level. In the second year, he will earn $575,000 in the NHL, or $60,000 in the AHL, and the deal pays Robertson a $120,000 signing bonus.

Robertson, who played collegiately at Brown, will join the Charlotte Checkers for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.

The Hurricanes acquired Robertson from Toronto on Jan. 1, along with John-Michael Liles in exchange for Tim Gleason.

Robertson, 22, recently completed his senior season at Brown, was named first-team All-Ivy and was a finalist for ECAC Best Defensive Defenseman. He served his second consecutive season as the team’s captain, and led all Bears skaters with a plus-11 plus/minus rating, 78 penalty minutes, five power-play goals and 56 blocked shots.
