NHL Coach’s Son Parts Ways with Team to Play Under Father’s Leadership

Skyler Brind’Amour, the son of former NHLer and current Carolina Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour, has informed the Edmonton Oilers that he will NOT be signing with the team and will instead test the open market as a free agent, according to NHL insider Frank Seravalli.

I wonder where he’ll end up…

The 23-year-old center recently completed his NCAA career by winning the NCAA Ice Hockey National Title with Quinnipiac University earlier this week. This past season, he had 14 goals and 32 points in 41 games.

Almost everyone knows that Brind’Amour will sign with his father’s Hurricanes when he becomes a free agent on August 15th. After all, his father is a Carolina legend, and Skyler was born and raised in Raleigh. On so many levels, this makes sense.

Oilers fans, don’t take it personally…

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: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
