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.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
