Rod Brind'Amour of the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday won the Jack Adams Award for NHL coach of the year as voted by members of the NHL Broadcasters' Association.

"This is a great honor to even be thought of in this category," Brind'Amour said. "There's not a coach in this league worth his weight that would say it's about him. Winning this award is an organizational award, and I'm really proud to be accepting this on behalf of this organization."
