The Carolina Hurricanes announced Wednesday that the team has hired Joe Nieuwendyk as a professional scout and advisor.

"Joe brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization," said Executive Vice President and General Manager Ron Francis in a statement. "He will be based in Dallas, and will be a major asset to the Hurricanes in player evaluations."

Nieuwendyk, 47, served as the general manager for the Dallas Stars from 2009 to 2013.

Prior to joining the Stars, he served in advisory roles for the Maple Leafs and Panthers, and served as assistant general manager for Canada's silver-medal-winning team at the 2009 IIHF World Championship.

As a player, Nieuwendyk won the Stanley Cup with three different teams in three different decades, capturing championships with Calgary in 1989, Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003. He played 1,257 career NHL games, scoring 564 career goals and totaling 562 assists (1,126 points) and was a four-time NHL All-Star.
