may no longer be leading the Carolina Hurricanes
on the ice, but his No. 17 will be visible at the RBC Center for years to come.
The 'Canes are raising their former captain's number to the rafters prior to Friday's home game against Philadelphia. It's appropriate that the Flyers are the visiting team -- Brind'Amour spent nine years in Philadelphia before being dealt to Carolina, where he led the Hurricanes to their only Stanley Cup in 2006. He retired this past summer.
Carolina, coming off a 3-2 loss at New Jersey on Wednesday, will be trying to end a nine-game losing streak against the Flyers when the puck drops at 8 p.m. ET. The NHL Network will show the game in the United States.
