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

Faulk, who is 6-foot, 215 pounds, has 16 goals and 45 assists in 169 career games.
