Former NHL Legend
Rod Brind'Amour Biography
Rod Brind'Amour was born August 9, 1970 and is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey centre who played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the ++St. Louis Blues++, Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes. He captained the Hurricanes to the franchise's first Stanley Cup championship in 2006. He now acts as their assistant coach and development coach.
Brind'Amour won his only Stanley Cup on June 19, 2006, with the Hurricanes, defeating the Edmonton Oilers in the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals in seven games. During that summer, Brind'Amour re-signed with the Hurricanes with a five-year deal.
In December 2006, he scored his 1000th career point and in February 2007, he recorded his 400th career goal.
On February 14, 2008 against Pittsburgh, Brind'Amour tore his ACL in the first period ending his 2007–08 season. However, Brind'Amour would return for the 2008-09 NHL Season, playing in 80 games while recording 16 goals and 35 assists as the Hurricanes reached the Eastern Conference Finals.
On January 20, 2010, Brind'Amour was replaced as Hurricanes captain by Eric Staal, previously an alternate captain. Brind'Amour was an alternate captain for the rest of the season (and as it would turn out, his career). Following the 2009-10 season, Brind'Amour retired as a player, having played 1,484 career NHL games, and moved into Hurricanes team management as a director of forwards development. His #17 number was retired in a ceremony on February 18, 2011. The ceremony took place prior to a game against the Philadelphia Flyers, whose coach was Peter Laviolette. Thus the two teams Brind'Amour spent the bulk of his career with as well as the coach he won the Stanley Cup with were present to honor him. It is the third number to be officially retired by the Hurricanes since moving to Raleigh, after Glen Wesley's #2 and Ron Francis' #10; all three retired players continue to work within the organization.
Brind'Amour represented the team in a ceremony before the Charlotte Checkers' first home game as the Hurricanes' new AHL affiliate.
On June 7, 2011, Brind'Amour was introduced by the Hurricanes as their assistant coach and development coach. He will retain his role in developing the franchise's forwards while also spending time behind the bench in the NHL.
Brind'Amour was among the last few players in the league who had also played in the NHL in the 1980s. He finished his professional career 18th all-time in games played.
