Brind\'Amour to Miss Season Finale
Thursday’s game at the RBC Center could have been Rod Brind’Amour’s last ever home game. As it turns out, it could also have been his last in the NHL.

Coach Paul Maurice said Friday morning that Brind’Amour will not make the trip to Boston for the Hurricanes’ season finale due to a groin injury. Jerome Samson will be recalled to take his place.

“It was the first time our trainer ever remembers him coming off the ice and going into the training room, so this is not good,” said Maurice.

Brind’Amour was not at the RecZone for Friday’s optional skate and was thus unavailable for comment, but he recently expressed uncertainty about his return for next season. His coach echoed that sentiment.

“I do not know the answer to that question,” said Maurice.

Brind’Amour still has one year remaining on his contract, a five-year deal signed after the team’s 2006 Stanley Cup victory. The alternate captain will be 40 at the start of next season’s training camp.

Samson’s recall will be his third of the season. The winger, recently named AHL Player of the Month for March and to the league’s First All-Star Team, has posted 37 goals and 78 points in 74 contests with
Albany. The 22-year-old is expected to be one of several young forwards vying for an opening night spot next season.
