Kevin Dineen didn't get to raise a Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes. But he said today that he felt a part of the Canes' championship in 2006, even from afar.
Dineen was drafted by Hartford in 1982, traded to Philadelphia and then back to Hartford. He made the move to North Carolina in 1997 when the team relocated and was team captain.
"When you're with a franchise, it's always great to see them do well," Dineen said. "Even if I was part of another franchise, when the Carolina Hurricanes win a Cup, that's a part of you. It's part of your identity."
