Throughout the game, the Blue Cross/Blue Shield of North Carolina Storm Squad, new in-game host “Ron the Ref” and Hurricanes mascot, Stormy, will entertain fans and help the Hurricanes’ Promotions and Fan Development Department with games and giveaways.

Following the game, the band Brickhouse will entertain fans wishing to celebrate in the arena club restaurant.
