Ronnie "Franchise" to Hurricanes Front Office?

It looks as if another NHL veteran has decided to call it a career. According to Yahoo! Sports, Ron Francis was offered a front office job with the franchise that he has known the most in his 20+ years.

Ronnie "Franchise" was originally drafted by the Hartford Whalers, but after 9 seasons, he was traded to the Penguins to win the Stanley Cup. He also brought the Whalers to the Finals in their current Carolina Hurricanes form. Last season, he made a run for the Stanley Cup as a Toronto Maple Leaf.
Originally reported in the Raleigh News & Observer newspaper, Ronnie "Franchise" will be a welcome relief to the franchise he's helped build.
