Goalies/Head Coach

Cam Ward

For 13 years, he was between the pipes for the Carolina Hurricanes. He will be on every all time list for the Hurricanes for decades to come, and eventually Cam Ward‘s number 30 will hang in the PNC Arena rafters.

Petr Mrazek

He asked Don Waddell for a chance to prove that he is a starting goalie. Well, so far Petr Mrazek has proven it. Going beyond many people expectations, Mrazek took us back to the playoffs and looks to be the goalie of the future. He takes competition and runs with it. He lifts his teammates up and has helped turn his backups into dynamic duos. Can he help the team get to the Cup Finals?

Head Coach

Rod Brind’Amour

Former Canes captain, assistant coach for most of the decade, now he’s the head coach, and in his first year he lead us back to the playoffs. Stanley Cup Champion player that will soon be a Stanley Cup Champion Coach. ‘Nuff Said.
