Part Three: Carolina Hurricanes Coach
The Carolina Hurricanes are on the doorstep of a championship. For the past five years the ‘Canes have been among the most talented, competitive, and feared teams in the National Hockey League. But injuries, and other factors, have thus far kept the Triangle’s only major professional sports team from winning its second-ever Stanley Cup. Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour is in his sixth season overseeing the team. He recently sat down with Due South to talk about the campaign, hockey’s growth in the south, and some of his proudest moments.
