Hurricanes

Canes to retire Brind'Amour's jersey

Posted July 15, 2010

The Carolina Hurricanes will honor former captain Rod Brind’Amour by retiring his No. 17 sweater prior to the Hurricanes’ game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, Feb. 18, 2011, team President and General Manager Jim Rutherford announced Thursday afternoon.

Brind’Amour retired from the game during a press conference on June 30.

“There is no image of our franchise more memorable than that of Rod Brind’Amour, our captain, hoisting the Stanley Cup above his head, the emotions from a lifetime of hard work and dedication pouring out of him,” said Rutherford. “There is no doubt that Rod’s number belongs in the rafters of the RBC Center, and February 18 will surely be a very special night for our fans and everyone connected with the Hurricanes organization.”

Brind’Amour completed his career ranked 16th in NHL history in games played (1,484), 44th in assists (732), 46th in points (1,184) and 54th in goals (452), in 21 seasons with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Carolina.

The 39-year-old debuted with the Blues during the 1989 Stanley Cup playoffs after completing one season at Michigan State, and scored a goal on his first NHL shot against the Minnesota North Stars.

Brind’Amour played in 159 career Stanley Cup playoff games, totaling 51 goals and 60 assists. He participated in the Stanley Cup Final three times, reaching the Final in 1997 with Philadelphia and 2002 and 2006 with Carolina, captaining the Hurricanes to the 2006 Stanley Cup championship.

Acquired by the Hurricanes from the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 23, 2000, Brind’Amour is the career points leader for the Hurricanes since the team’s relocation to North Carolina, notching 473 points in 694 games played. He also ranks first in assists (299), first in shorthanded goals (10), third in goals (174) and third in power-play goals (60) in the team’s North Carolina history. Brind’Amour ranks second in overall franchise history (including Hartford) in assists (299), third in points (473) and fourth in games played (694). Named the Hurricanes’ captain prior to the 2005-06 season, Brind’Amour netted 31 goals and earned 39 assists (70 points) that season to lead the team to a franchise-record 52 regular-season wins. His league-leading 12 playoff goals during the teams’ Stanley Cup run were also a franchise record.

Individual-game tickets for Rod Brind’Amour Night will not go on sale until December, but fans can secure their seats now by purchasing ticket plans. The Feb. 18 game is included in all full-season ticket packages, as well as 26-game plans and the “Red Pack” 12-game plan.

    Man, I'm jealous of you being there in person! I had to settle for watching the game on TV. Luckily, we got our first big screen just as the playoffs were starting in '06. I will NEVER forget the look on Roddy's face as he hoisted the cup. I was so happy for him and the team. My brother used to go up to Connecticut to watch them play during the Whalers years. He and I watched the triple OT game against The Red Wings during the '02 Cup run. Even though we lost that game and the series, that was one heck of a game.

    I get frustrated when they trade veteran players. To me, it's the name on the back of the jersey that makes the logo on the front of the jersey so special. There have been so many good players for the Canes. Players that give back to the community, etc.; classy guys on and off the ice. That is what I think separates the Canes from other NHL franchises. I went to Circuit City right after the Canes won The Cup, and the salesman told me I just missed Brett Hedigan and his wife, Christy Yamaguchi - they were in to buy a cam corder so they could tape the Canes parade. Can you imagine a Stanley Cup winner with his Olympic Gold Medal winning wife out to buy a cam corder - just like regular people?

    I get frustrated with the recycling too, unless it's to bring back a really good player. My brother told me The Canes will never pay the $$$$ that other franchises pay, so they'll always be a mediocre team. I hope he's wrong.

    It's been good blogging with you - you're a great fan. Let's hope for a good year for The Canes.

    Jgunn - Been a fan of this FRANCHISE for over 20 years. Can't stand the owner. Was in Hartford for the final game. Went to the second to the last game at the mall. Watched the last game on TV with my Guard Unit. Was very sad to watch.

    Am a very RABID Canes fans. Don't like what is going on right now, but it is for the best of the franchise. Would love for them to surprise the fans and sign Kolvachuk. Get really angry each year watching us recycle. Been like this for a very long time. Would love to see Kovi here. But, it is what it is. Just really thankful for the CUP in 06. Game 7 was the Greatest day of my sports life. Being there in person was AWESOME.

    Hey ktstcanes - I've enjoyed your posts on the Canes forum. I agree that there is some funny stuff posted on these boards. I don't know how the subject got changed from retiring Roddy's jersey to a banner battle. I'll leave that argument for Mr. BostonCeltics. I'm looking forward to a good year for the Canes. They're a young team, but hopefully a faster team. Have a good one!

    Jgunn. I love to post here. Think most posts are actually pretty funny. My addition to this argument was that we were comparing a professional team (Boston Celtics), to a college team. The point I was making was that you have a Professional team with 17 Championships.

    ("17") There is no comparison. IMO, stupid argument. Long tradition, long history. NC State is a college team. Young kids, lots of pride. Happy for their accomplishments. Regardless if it is WHATEVER place.

    IMO, MORONIC comparison when the subject matter is retiring a hockey players jersey!!!!!!!!

    Agreed. The banner banter started when bostonceltics (a tool) criticized the NC State banners hanging in the RBC center. He got off on tangents unrelated to Brindy's number being retired. Oh, other than agreeing Brind'Amour was deserving of that honor, he also criticized Brind'Amour being referred to as "Roddy" or "Brindy". Yeah, when people can hide behind a keyboard, there's no telling what stupidity they'll put out there.

    I agree. I alway's like the arguments that people have here. Light humor is seen as third grade. The best part of this is that we sit behind a keyboard and pound our chest. Very brave.

    It is alway's comical when the resident experts engage in such trivial argument about banners in one's rafters. WHO CARES. NC State can hang anything they want in their rafters. Boston can put anything they like in their rafters. But to sit and compare when the subject is retiring Brindy's number is simply MORONIC!!!!!!!
