Roderic Jean "Rod" Brind'Amour (born August 9, 1970) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey centre who played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the St. Louis Blues, Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes. He captained the Hurricanes to the franchise's first Stanley Cup championship in 2006.

Born in Ottawa but raised in Prince Rupert and Campbell River, British Columbia, Brind'Amour was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the first round (ninth overall) of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Brind'Amour played the next season at Michigan State University. Brind'Amour became well-known for working out constantly, earning the nickname "Rod the Bod". During his time at Michigan State, Brind'Amour would go from a game directly into the weight room where he would undertake a strenuous workout. His coach at the time said that Brind'Amour's workouts became so intense that they would turn the lights out on him, and when that failed to work, they would padlock the room.

At the conclusion of the collegiate hockey season, Brind'Amour joined the Blues during the 1989 NHL playoffs. He made his debut in game 5 of the Blues' division semifinals against the Minnesota North Stars and scored a goal on his first shot. In his first full NHL season, Brind'Amour scored 27 points in the Blues' first 24 games and finished third on the Blues with 26 goals. Brind'Amour was selected to the 1989–90 All-Rookie Team.
