Nieuwendyk was general manager of the Dallas Stars from 2009 to 2013, and prior to that held advisory roles with the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Joe brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization," Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis said. "He will be based in Dallas and will be a major asset to the Hurricanes in player evaluations."

As a player, Nieuwendyk won the Stanley Cup three times and is 22nd on the all-time list with 564 goals. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
