RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have named former captain Rod Brind'Amour and former NHL head coach Dave Lewis to their coaching staff.

The Hurricanes on Tuesday said Lewis would be an assistant coach and work with their defensemen, and Brind'Amour will carry the titles of assistant coach and development coach.

The team also announced new positions for two of last season's assistants. They said Ron Francis will be their director of hockey operations and added Tom Rowe to their pro scouting staff.

Brind'Amour, the captain of Carolina's only Stanley Cup championship team in 2006, ended his two-decade playing career last summer and was named director of forwards development. Lewis coached the Detroit Red Wings from 2002-04 and the Boston Bruins from 2006-07.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
