[Report] Hurricanes extend GM Ron Francis through 2018-19

Recommended Posts


The Carolina Hurricanes signed general manager and executive vice president Ron Francis to a contract extension through the 2018-19 season, owner Peter Karmanos announced Tuesday.


Francis is entering his 11th season in Hurricanes management, and third as GM.


"Ron has rebuilt our organization the right way, stocking our team and system with young players who will help this franchise compete for the Stanley Cup year in and year out," Karmanos said. "I'm thrilled that he will continue to see the job through. The future is very bright for the Hurricanes in Carolina."


Carolina has built a promising pool of prospects that includes Noah Hanifin, Teuvo Teravainen, Sebastian Aho, and 2016 13th overall pick Jake Bean.


The 53-year-old Francis spent 16 seasons of his Hall of Fame playing career with the Hurricanes/Hartford Whalers franchise.
