RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Carolina Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour will lead the Metropolitan Division’s team in the 2022 All-Star Game on Feb. 5, the NHL announced Tuesday.

Brind’Amour earned the role by virtue of the ‘Canes ranking atop the division in points percentage as of Monday.

In fact, Carolina’s .758 points percentage is best in the NHL.

The league’s all-star festivities will be held Feb. 4 and 5 in Las Vegas.

Brind’Amour won the Jack Adams Award — recognition as the NHL’s top bench boss — last season.

He will be joined by Colorado’s Jarad Bednar (Central Division), Florida’s Andrew Brunette (Florida), and Peter DeBoer (Vegas).
