Hurricanes Sign Rod Brind'Amour to Extension

Over the last several weeks, there has been speculation over Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour's future with the club. Now, that can all be put to rest.

During Saturday night's Western Conference second-round contest between the Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers, NHL insider Kevin Weekes reported that Brind'Amour has signed a multi-year contract extension to stay with the Hurricanes. Along with that, the rest of the coaching staff has also signed for multiple more years.

At this juncture, the Hurricanes have not officially announced that Brind'Amour and the rest of the Hurricanes' staff have signed new deals. Yet, given the fact that Weekes, a well-known insider, is dropping this news, that should change very shortly.

Seeing the Hurricanes bring back Brind'Amour is truly a no-brainer. He has been a spectacular coach for them since his arrival, and he is, of course, one of the greatest players in their history. 

In 452 career games as the Hurricanes' bench boss, Brind'Amour has a 278-130-44 record. Along with that, he won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach for the 2020-21 season.
