Director of Forwards Development
Cory Stillman returns to the Hurricanes in 2012-13, in the position of director of forwards development previously held by Rod Brind’Amour. Stillman, 38, retired as a player in September 2011 after 16 NHL seasons, and spent the 2011-12 season working as player development assistant for the Florida Panthers.
A first-round selection (6th overall) of the Calgary Flames in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, Stillman totaled 278 goals and 449 assists (727 points) in 1,025 career games with the Calgary Flames, St. Louis Blues, Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes, Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers. He scored 52 goals and added 113 assists (165 points) in 191 games during two stints with the Hurricanes from 2005-2008 and in 2011. He was second among Hurricanes in scoring during the team’s run to the 2006 Stanley Cup championship, notching 26 points (9g, 17a) in 25 games, and netting the series-clinching, overtime goal in the first round against the Montreal Canadiens. Stillman also won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Lightning in 2004, and the 2006 title made him the sixth player in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup in consecutive seasons with two different teams.
Stillman and his wife, Mara, have three children: Riley, Madison and Chase.
