STANLEY CUP TO MAKE PUBLIC APPEARANCES DEC. 4-5
Trophy to make stops at NC State University and downtown Raleigh

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Dec. 1, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—
Doug Warf, Manager of Promotions and Fan Development for the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Stanley Cup will be in Raleigh for several public appearances on Monday, Dec. 4 and Tuesday, Dec. 5.

On Monday, Dec. 4, the Stanley Cup will be at North Carolina State University from noon until 2 p.m. The Cup, accompanied by a representative of the Hockey Hall of Fame, Hurricanes mascot “Stormy,” and several Hurricanes staff members, will be on display at NC State’s “Brickyard.” Depending on the length of the line, personal photographs with the Stanley Cup may be available.

From 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Dec. 4, the Cup will be at the RBC Center for “Youth Hockey Night.” All registered youth hockey players are encouraged to enter through the arena’s West entrance, and players will be admitted based on them wearing their youth hockey jerseys. Family members are invited to accompany their players.

On Tuesday, Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., the Stanley Cup will be on display in downtown Raleigh at the 400 block of Fayetteville Street, adjacent to the downtown Sheraton hotel. The trophy will be placed under a large tent and will be available for viewing by the general public. Like the appearance at NC State, personal photographs may be available based on crowd size. A representative from the Hockey Hall of Fame, Hurricanes mascot “Stormy,” members of the BSBCNC Storm Squad and several Hurricanes staff members will accompany the Cup.

The Carolina Hurricanes captured their first Stanley Cup championship – the first major league sports championship in the history of North Carolina – on June 19, 2006. Originally purchased in Sheffield, England in 1892, the Stanley Cup was awarded for the first time in 1893 to the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association “AAA’s.” Comprised of 97 percent silver and three percent nickel, the trophy weighs 35 lbs. and travels roughly 320 days per year. Since 1995, each player from that season’s winning team has enjoyed at least one day with the Cup. It is inscribed with 52 names from the Carolina Hurricanes organization including all of the players from last year’s Stanley Cup Championship team. The names will remain on the Cup for 64 years before the ring bearing the names is removed and permanently stored at the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Hurricanes wrap up their current three-game home stand on Saturday against the Boston Bruins (7 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network) before heading west for a four-game road trip against Northwest Division opponents. Individual-game tickets all Hurricanes home games in December and January, including Rod Brind’Amour Night on Dec. 29 against Anaheim, are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or via www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
