Hurricanes hire Campbell River's Rod Brind'Amour as head coach

The Carolina Hurricanes hired former captain and current assistant Rod Brind’Amour as their coach Tuesday, hoping the “greatest leader” in franchise history can end a nine-year playoff drought.

Campbell River’s Brind’Amour has been a Carolina assistant since 2011.

He spent half his 20-season NHL career with the Hurricanes, leading them to the Stanley Cup finals in 2002 and again four years later.
