Nieuwendyk Joins Carolina's Front Office

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes have added former Dallas Stars general manager Joe Nieuwendyk to their front office roster.

Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said Wednesday that Nieuwendyk was hired as a professional scout and advisor who will remain based in Dallas.

The 47-year-old was the Stars' GM from 2009-13. As a player, he won the Stanley Cup with three teams in three decades - Calgary in 1989, Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003.

Francis says Nieuwendyk "brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization."
