STANLEY CUP TO VISIT CHAPEL HILL ON WEDNESDAY
Storied trophy to be displayed at “The Pit” on campus of UNC-Chapel Hill

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—Dec. 4, 2006

RALEIGH, NC—Doug Warf, Manager of Promotions and Fan Development for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Stanley Cup will be on display at “The Pit” on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Wednesday from 10 a.m. until noon. The Chapel Hill appearance is one of three public displays this week of the oldest and most treasured prize in North American professional sports.

The Stanley Cup was on display at North Carolina State University’s “Brickyard” earlier today, and the trophy will visit the 400 block of Fayetteville St. in Raleigh tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 5, from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. Personal photographs with the Stanley Cup may be possible at each public appearance based on the number of people on hand.

Along with the three public viewings, the Stanley Cup will be at the RBC Center tonight for “Youth Hockey Night” from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Youth hockey players are encouraged to wear their jerseys and enter the RBC Center through the building’s West entrance. Players’ families are welcome to attend with their players.

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 Carolina Hurricanes begin a four-game road swing against Northwest Division opponents on Tuesday against the Calgary Flames (9 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). After games at Edmonton, Vancouver and Colorado, the Hurricanes will return to the RBC Center on Dec. 15 to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs (7:30 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network). Individual-game tickets for Hurricanes home games in December and January are available at the RBC Center box office, all TicketMaster locations, by calling 919-834-4000 or via www.CarolinaHurricanes.com.
