Felix Unger-Sorum signs entry-level three-year contract with Carolina Hurricanes


The Carolina Hurricanes have signed forward Felix Unger-Sorum to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes selected the 17-year-old with the 62nd overall pick in 2023. Unger-Sorum finished the season on a high, recording two goals and 10 points in seven games at the World U-18 Hockey Championship with Sweden. Unger-Sorum won silver at the tournament, four months after capturing bronze at the World Junior A Challenge.

Unger-Sorum spent most of the season in Sweden’s U-20 league, scoring 10 goals and 46 points in 42 regular season games. He also had nine points in seven playoff games and another six points in five playoff games with Leksands U-18 team. Unger-Sorum appeared in seven SHL games with Leksands, with his January 28 outing against Orebro (13:18) being the only game in which he skated over two minutes.

A hard-working striker and playmaker, Unger-Sorum is set to play with Leksands again for the 2023-24 campaign. He is the fifth player to be signed by the team since April behind goalkeeper Yaniv Perets, defenders Griffin Mendel and Domenick Fensore and striker Justin Robidas. The Hurricanes have also signed deals for veterans Dmitry Orlov, Michael Bunting, Brendan Lemieux and Dylan Coghlan, while bringing back Jesper Fast, Antti Raanta and Frederik Andersen.

The Hurricanes were swept in the third round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Florida Panthers this year, the farthest they have gone since 2019.
