The Carolina Hurricanes have hired veteran NHL executive Rick Dudley to a front-office position.

Owner Tom Dundon on Tuesday said Dudley will be the team’s senior vice president of hockey operations.

The 69-year-old Dudley comes to Carolina after holding the same position with the Montreal Canadiens, and has been a general manager for four NHL teams.

His hiring came a day after the Hurricanes terminated the contract of Hall of Fame player Ron Francis , the team’s demoted general manager who had spent roughly two months as Carolina’s president of hockey operations.

The Hurricanes are searching for a full-time GM and a head coach after they missed the playoffs for a ninth straight year.
