FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Nov. 3, 2006

A LOOK BACK: RON FRANCIS NIGHT ARCHIVE (Jan. 28, 2006)

In 23 NHL seasons, Francis played in 1,731 regular-season games, scored 549 goals, earned 1,249 assists (2nd all-time) and had 1,798 points with Hartford/Carolina, Pittsburgh and Toronto.

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that Ron Francis has joined the Hurricanes front office as Director of Player Development. In his role, Francis will work with and assess players in the Hurricanes system and report to Director of Pro Scouting Marshall Johnston.

“Ron’s knowledge of the game of hockey and his experience as a player go without mention,” said Rutherford. “Having Ron in this role will be a true benefit to the players and the Hurricanes organization.”

This marks Francis’ first hockey-related position since he retired as a player prior to the 2005-06 season. The future Hall of Famer is the Carolina franchise’s all-time leader in nearly every offensive category, including goals (382), assists (793), points (1,175) and power-play goals (132), and ranks first in franchise history having skated in 1,186 regular-season games.

In 23 NHL seasons, Francis played in 1,731 regular-season games (3rd all-time), scored 549 goals (22nd all-time), earned 1,249 assists (2nd all-time) and had 1,798 points (4th all-time) with Hartford/Carolina, Pittsburgh and Toronto. His name is on the Stanley Cup twice as a member of the 1991 and 1992 Penguins championship teams. The Hurricanes officially retired Francis’ No. 10 jersey to the RBC Center’s rafters on Jan. 28, 2006.
