Honored members

Retired numbers : The Hurricanes have officially retired two numbers since their move to Carolina, the 10 of center Ron Francis in 2006 and the 2 of Glen Wesley in 2009. [8] The Hurricanes keep three numbers out of circulation without banners: defenseman Steve Chiasson's 3 was unofficially retired following his 1999 death while a member of the team, and the team honors the leaguewide retirement of Wayne Gretzky's 99 , as well as the Hartford retirement of 9 for Gordie Howe. The franchise had retired two additional numbers in Hartford, but after the move, the Hurricanes resumed issuing the jerseys 2 of Rick Ley (D, 1972–81) (which was issued only to Wesley before its re-retirement) and 19 of John McKenzie (RW, 1977–79).

Hall of Famers : Ron Francis, who captained the team in both Hartford and Carolina and spent fifteen years with the franchise overall as a player before joining its staff in 2006, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007. The only other Hall member to have played in a Hurricanes jersey is Paul Coffey, who spent one and a half seasons in Carolina near the end of his career (as well as, two seasons prior, twenty games in Hartford). In the franchise's history, WHA and NHL Whalers Gordie Howe and Dave Keon are both members, as is Bobby Hull, although he only played nine games in Hartford. In addition, longtime franchise radio play-by-play announcer Chuck Kaiton received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award in 2004, an honor granted by the Hall of Fame.
