Rod Brind\'Amour Nominated for NHL Awards

RALEIGH, NC—A recent vote by Carolina Hurricanes players resulted in the team’s nomination of alternate captain Rod Brind’Amour for this year’s King Clancy Memorial Trophy. Similarly, Brind’Amour’s teammates voted him as this year’s winner of the team’s Steve Chiasson Award, and the North Carolina chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association named Brind’Amour as the team’s candidate for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy.

The King Clancy Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice, and has made a noteworthy contribution in his community. For more than 10 years, Brind’Amour has hosted an annual charity golf tournament in his hometown of Campbell River, BC, benefiting Cystic Fibrosis. The tournament has raised more than $500,000 for Cystic Fibrosis research in British Columbia. He is also an integral part of the Hurricanes’ Kids ‘N Community Foundation’s fundraising events, which help the Foundation provide much-needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina.

The Masterton Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to the game of hockey. In February 2008, at age 37, Brind’Amour sustained a season-ending knee injury which resulted in reconstructive surgery and extensive rehabilitation. He returned to the team for Opening Night of the 2008-09 season, and, in the ensuing 15 months, completed a 10-year span from 2000-2009 that saw him lead all Hurricanes players in games played (653), points (462) and assists (295).

In January 2010, the 39-year-old Brind’Amour relinquished his captaincy that he had held since the August 2005, allowing the franchise to move forward with Eric Staal as captain. Through games of April 8, the Hurricanes have posted a 21-9-3 record since the change in captaincy. Always one of the NHL’s top faceoff men, Brind’Amour leads the team and ranks third in the NHL in winning 58.8 percent of draws this season.

This marks the fifth season in which his Hurricanes teammates have named Brind’Amour the winner of the team’s Steve Chiasson Award. The Award is given annually to the Hurricanes player that best exemplifies determination and dedication while proving to be an inspiration to his teammates through his performance and approach to the game.
