RALEIGH, N.C. (CP) - Former Carolina captain Ron Francis is joining the Hurricanes front office.

The team named him director of player development Friday.

Francis, the NHL's second all-time leading scorer, will work with and assess players in the club's system and report to director of pro scouting Marshall Johnston.

"Ron's knowledge of the game of hockey and his experience as a player go without mention," Jim Rutherford, Hurricanes president and general manager, said in a statement. "Having Ron in this role will be a true benefit to the players and the Hurricanes organisation."
