Here to stay: Canes sign Brind’Amour to multi-year extension ::

— Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour is staying in Raleigh.

The Canes legend agreed to a multi-year contract extension with the team. Assistant coaches Jeff Daniels and Tim Gleason, video coach Chris Huffine and goaltending coach Paul Schonfelder have also agreed to multi-year extensions.

ESPN insider and former Carolina Hurricane Kevin Weekes first reported the contract extension. The Carolina Hurricanes confirmed the news Sunday afternoon.

“Rod has been instrumental to the success we’ve had over the last six seasons,” said Hurricanes President and General Manger Don Waddell. “Ever since he joined the organization 24 years ago, Rod has embodied what it means to be a Hurricane. We hope to keep him a Hurricane for life.”

Brind’Amour will speak with the media about the extension on Monday at 10 a.m with Waddell.

The Hurricanes hired Brind’Amour as head coach in 2018. Since taking over, Brind’Amour has led the Canes to six straight playoff appearances and two appearances in the conference finals.

The Canes were eliminated from the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Thursday after losing to the New York Rangers in six games in the second round.

Brind’Amour is 278-130-44 as head coach. Brind’Amour previously led the Hurricanes to the Stanely Cup as a player, defeating the Edmonton Oilers in seven games in 2006.
