The Carolina Hurricanes signed defenceman Justin Faulk to a six-year, $29 million contract extension on Monday.

The average annual value of the deal is $4.833 million.

"Justin has proven to be among the best young defensemen in the league as confirmed by his selection to the U.S. Olympic team," said Hurricanes president and general manager Jim Rutherford in a statement. "He has been and will continue to be the anchor of the Hurricanes' defence for years to come."

The 22-year-old blueliner has three goals and 21 assists in 65 games this season for the Hurricanes, and averages more than 23 minutes of ice time for the team.

He played for Team USA at the Sochi Olympics last month.
