The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Joakim Ryan and second-round pick Vasiliy Ponomarev, and have also have extended forward Clark Bishop.

Ryan, who’s 27 years old, signed a one-year deal worth $700,000. He spent this past season with the Los Angeles Kings, where he had five points in 35 games and Ryan could be a strong candidate to be a spare for Carolina’s defense group this season.

Ponomarev, who was selected by the Hurricanes with the 53rd overall pick in this year’s NHL Draft, signed his a three-year entry-level contract. He’s a center who’s currently in his second QMJHL season with the Shawinigan Cataractes.

Bishop, a 24-year-old center, re-signed with the organization on a one-year deal worth $700,000. He played five games with the Hurricanes in the 2019-20 season but spent most of the year with the AHL's Charlotte Checkers.
