Hurricanes changes to start Monday with 'operations announcement'

Posted April 28, 2014

— Changes are coming for the Carolina Hurricanes and they will start Monday as the team will hold a press conference to make an “operations announcement”.

The press conference, which will be held at PNC Arena at Noon, will include executive management and address staff changes. It will be streamed live on WRAL.com as well as 99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio.

On March 24, it was reported that team president and general manager Jim Rutherford would step away from some of his duties with the team. The 65-year-old has been the general manager of the organization for 20 years and is part of the ownership group.

Ron Francis, thought to be next in line for the general manager position, serves as the assistant general manager and vice president of hockey operations. Following a 23-year NHL career, Francis has spent the last eight seasons working in multiple roles with the Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes missed the playoffs this year for the fifth consecutive season, tying them for the third longest drought in the NHL.

Current head coach Kirk Muller said on April 16 that he had not been told by management on his job status. Muller has a 80-80-27 career record in three seasons behind the Hurricanes bench and has yet to make the playoffs.

    The comments below show how far this franchise has sunk in terms of fan interest. We don't need a Stanley Cup every year, but we do need player hustle and the occasional playoff appearance. Good luck to the new GM. He is going to need it to turn around this ship.

    The Hurricanes are still in the NHL? Sorry, I hadn't noticed.

  • finz2drght Apr 28, 2014

    New GM - time to clean house. Eric and Cam need to step up -- or GO. I have not been impressed by either since 2006. The team needs a leader on the ice.

  • PowderedToastMan Apr 28, 2014

    Good..got a new GM, now they need a new coach and they need to trade Eric.
