Jeff DanielsHead Coach and General Manager, Charlotte Checkers (AHL)

Jeff Daniels, 45, enters his 17th year with the Carolina Hurricanes organization and his fifth year as the Head Coach and General Manager of their top minor league affiliate. Daniels has a 200-151-41 record in the first five seasons of his career as a head coach.

In 2010-11, Daniels led the Charlotte Checkers to 44 wins and 94 points during the regular-season, the best totals for a Carolina affiliate since 2004-05. Daniels then guided the Checkers to the Eastern Conference Final, the deepest Calder Cup playoff run for Carolina’s AHL team since the 1996-97 Springfield Falcons.

Prior to being appointed to his current post, Daniels spent four seasons with the Hurricanes as an assistant coach. He helped guide the Hurricanes to the 2006 Stanley Cup championship, marking the second time he captured the Stanley Cup in his hockey career, as he also has his name inscribed on the Cup as a player with the 1992 Pittsburgh Penguins.

Daniels was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the sixth round (109th overall) of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft. In his 15-year professional playing career as a forward, Daniels spent time with the Pittsburgh, Florida, Nashville and Carolina organizations. He played in 425 NHL regular-season games, scoring 17 goals and 26 assists (43 points), and 41 Stanley Cup Playoff games, where he totaled three goals and five assists (8 points). He played in the Hurricanes organization for six seasons, tallying eight goals and 12 assists (20 points) in 272 regular season games, and three assists in 29 playoff games, while making a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2002.

In addition to his time in the NHL, Daniels also played in the IHL and AHL. He played in 334 career IHL games with Muskegon, Cleveland, Detroit and Milwaukee, totaling 115 goals and 157 assists for 272 points. In 181 career AHL games with Springfield and New Haven, he earned 64 goals and 61 assists (125 points). Prior to turning professional in 1988, Daniels played four seasons of junior hockey for his hometown team, the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Daniels retired as a player from the Carolina Hurricanes on Nov. 17, 2003. He worked in a player-development capacity in the team’s front office before joining the Hurricanes’ coaching staff on Dec. 15, 2003.

Jeff and his wife, Jennifer, live in Morrisville, NC, in the off-season with their daughter, Jordan.
