from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,
It has been a busy few months since Brind’Amour ended his 21st NHL season. After weeks of uncertainty, Brind’Amour and the Canes made a joint announcement June 30 that the versatile center would retire but would remain with the team in a management position.
A few days later, he was remarried. More recently, on Aug. 9, he turned 40.
Now comes the hard part. A new hockey season beckons, and Brind’Amour will not be on the ice - not as a player - when the Hurricanes’ preseason training camp opens Sept. 17.
“It’s going to be interesting for me,” he said. “Right now it doesn’t feel any different. I’m still training with the guys in the offseason. I think once the camp comes and I’m not actually going out there, and just watching them, that’s going to be tough.
