Hurricanes Community Comes Together to Honor a Great Loss

The Hurricanes community was saddened to learn yesterday of the passing of Bob Brind’amour, Rod’s father.

The Carolina Hurricanes announced that Bob Brind’amour, Rod Brind’amour’s father, passed away yesterday.

Community members who are Hurricanes fans are grieving the loss. Bob was a man of character himself and helped mold Rod into the man he is today.

“There isn’t a person who met Bob who will ever forget him. He was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather who lit up every room he entered with passion, humor, and energy. He kept working as a pipe fitter in Campbell River well into Rod’s NHL career and it’s clear he passed that relentless work ethic down to his children.” – Hurricanes GM Don Waddell on the passing of Bob Brind’amour

During this difficult moment, our thoughts are with the Brind’amour family. Bob Brindamour, may you rest in peace.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
