Red and Black Hockey

In a press conference scheduled for noon (eastern time) today, the Hurricanes will officially announce a restructuring of the hockey department. The main change is that Rod Brind’Amour will join the bench, essentially stepping into the assistant coach position that Ron Francis held for the last couple of seasons. He will also be the “director of forwards development” or something like that. Francis will go back upstairs and focus on the Assistant GM duties. If there’s anything beyond that, it’ll be news to me.
The “news to me” part is that Dave Lewis has joined the coaching staff to handle the defensemen. He’s got loads of coaching experience from being an assistant and then a head coach for the Red Wings, then a head coach for the Bruins. This should be a very nice addition to the staff.
