Brind'Amour named Head of Forward Development

Quote:
Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that Rod Brind’Amour has been named director of forwards development for the team. Brind’Amour, who officially retired from hockey on June 30, 2010, is responsible for working with all forwards in the Hurricanes system, including drafted players in the Canadian major-junior hockey leagues, ECHL and American Hockey League (AHL). In addition to his work with the team’s prospects, Brind’Amour will also spend time on the ice with the Hurricanes’ NHL players during training camp and throughout the season.

“It is important for our team to have its most-accomplished players like Rod stay with the organization,” said Rutherford. “Rod is already displaying the same work ethic and dedication in his new role as he did with us as a player.”
Honestly I figured it would be in some kind of coaching or scouting roll. This is a good choice for Rod and the team.

is this a standard position that many NHL teams have?

or is this something artificial we created to keep Rod happy and recognize his past?

sounds a bit cheesy to me.

I know Director of Player Development is pretty standard. We have two of them now apparently between Glen (defensemen) and now Rod (forwards).

We're still really small in the scouting staff department though.

I suppose that works. At the very least, between Brindamour and Wesley, we should never be anywhere near as weak defensively in the future.

I like it.... a lot. None better to drive work ethic and instill fundamentals than Brindy.

The role is somewhat custom made, but as was previously alluded our scouting staff is very small and these guys wear many hats. Brind'Amour, Wesley, Barrasso, Karmanos Jr., and Francis formerly all go out and watch our kids play and serve as our development system to make sure that things our going off without a hitch. Other teams tend to have that task delegated to scouting. I like that the Hurricanes do it this way by sending out future or current HHOF players to take a bit of the glitz away and intimidation away from when these kids actually show up for camp and even make their NHL debut. The butterflies of playing in front of legends are already gone to an extent and it just helps their comfort level to know these guys it seems.

I think Roddy is so admired for his work ethic that he'll be a great influence on the younger players he works with now.

Does this mean Wes is now the Director of Backward Development . Well, in a sense that works.

If he puts the incoming forwards through his workout regiment, we're gonna have some pretty strong kids out there and it will work wonders for our cycle game
