Hurricanes Add John MacLean to Coaching Staff
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has hired John MacLean as an assistant coach. MacLean joins Head Coach Kirk Muller and Assistant Coaches Dave Lewis, Rod Brind’Amour and Tom Barrasso in the team’s coaching offices.

“I’m very pleased to add another character leader to our coaching staff,”
said Rutherford.

MacLean, 47, spent nine seasons as a coach in the New Jersey Devils organization, including seven years as an assistant coach. The Oshawa, Ont., native served as head coach of the Lowell Devils of the American Hockey League (AHL) in 2009-10, leading the Devils’ affiliate to its best-ever record and first-ever playoff berth. He was named head coach of the New Jersey Devils prior to the 2010-11 season, but was replaced 33 games into his first season as an NHL head coach.

Drafted by New Jersey sixth overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, MacLean played 19 NHL seasons with the Devils, Sharks, Rangers and Stars, totaling 413 goals, 429 assists (842 points) and 1,328 penalty minutes in 1,194 career NHL games. A two-time NHL All-Star (1989, 1991), MacLean won the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 1995, and totaled 83 points (35g, 48a) and 152 penalty minutes in 104 career Stanley Cup playoff games.

MacLean is the Devils’ all-time franchise leader with 347 goals, and ranks second in New Jersey franchise history with 701 points. He was a teammate of current Hurricanes Head Coach Kirk Muller with New Jersey and Dallas, as well as with Canada at the 1984 World Junior Championship and the 1989 IIHF World Championship.
