The Carolina Hurricanes may be on the verge of parting ways with Rod Brind'Amour.
Sources told WRAL late Tuesday that the former Hurricanes captain is not likely to play for the Canes next season.
Carolina does have the option of buying out Brind'Amour's contract. He has one year left on a $3 million deal. The Canes have a 5:30 p.m. deadline Wednesday to inform the league of a buyout.
Brind'Amour's production has dropped sharply in the last two seasons. The Hurricanes removed his status as team captain last year.
The sources would not confirm that a buyout specifically will take place, but they do make it clear that Brind'Amour believes he can still play in the NHL
Only now, it does not not look like he'll be playing for the Carolina Hurricanes.
