Hurricanes Hire Shane Willis as Youth and Amateur Hockey Coordinator
RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has hired former Hurricanes forward Shane Willis as its youth and amateur hockey coordinator. In this role, Willis will spearhead the Hurricanes’ initiatives through Carolina Youth & Amateur Hockey (CYAH), including the team’s summer camps and the Junior Hurricanes’ annual trip to the Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament.

“Shane brings a wealth of hockey experience to this important role for the Hurricanes organization,”
said Chase. “The team is committed to the continued growth of youth and amateur hockey in our community, and Shane, as a former Hurricanes player and longtime Triangle-area resident, is a great fit for this position.”

Willis, 34, played parts of six NHL seasons with the Hurricanes and the Tampa Bay Lightning, scoring 31 goals and earning 43 assists (74 points) in 174 career regular-season games. The Edmonton, Alb., native had his best season in 2000-01, when he scored 20 goals and earned 24 assists with Carolina, and was named to the NHL’s end-of-season All-Rookie Team. Willis also notched 152 goals and earned 161 assists (313 points) in 399 career regular-season games with top-level minor-league teams in the American Hockey League and the International Hockey League. He retired from his playing career following the 2008-09 season.
