As previously announced, the RBC Center doors will open at 6 p.m. on Friday night, and all fans in attendance will receive a replica mini No. 17 banner as they enter. Once inside the arena, fans can enjoy one of the defining moments of Brind’Amour’s career, as a replay of the third period of Game 7 of the 2006 Eastern Conference Finals is shown on the video board. At 6:30 p.m., Hurricanes television analyst Tripp Tracy will host a special roundtable discussion of Brind’Amour’s career with three of his former teammates – Bret Hedican, Keith Jones and Chris Therien. The ceremony to raise Brind’Amour’s No. 17 to the RBC Center rafters will begin promptly at 7 p.m., and fans are strongly encouraged to be in their seats by that time.

Originally drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the first round, ninth overall, in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, Brind’Amour completed his career ranked 16th in NHL history in games played (1,484), 44th in assists (732), 46th in points (1,184) and 54th in goals (452), in 21 seasons with St. Louis, Philadelphia and Carolina. The Ottawa, Ont., native debuted with the Blues during the 1989 Stanley Cup playoffs after completing one season at Michigan State, and scored a goal on his first NHL shot against the Minnesota North Stars. He was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team in 1990, after scoring 61 points (26g, 35a) in 79 games for St. Louis, and played in the NHL All-Star Game while a member of the Flyers in 1992. Brind’Amour represented Canada in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, and won back-to-back Frank J. Selke trophies as the NHL’s top defensive forward in 2005-06 and 2006-07, as a member of the Hurricanes.

Brind’Amour played in 159 career Stanley Cup playoff games, totaling 51 goals and 60 assists (111 points). He participated in the Stanley Cup Final three times, reaching the Final in 1997 with Philadelphia and 2002 and 2006 with Carolina, captaining the Hurricanes to the 2006 Stanley Cup championship.

Acquired by the Hurricanes from the Philadelphia Flyers on Jan. 23, 2000, Brind’Amour ranks second in franchise history in assists (299), fourth in points (473) and fourth in games played (694). Named the Hurricanes’ captain prior to the 2005-06 season, Brind’Amour netted 31 goals and earned 39 assists (70 points) that season to lead the team to a franchise-record 52 regular-season wins. His league-leading 12 playoff goals during the teams’ Stanley Cup run were also a franchise record.
