RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced details for the team’s 2011 NHL Awards Viewing Party at Buffalo Brothers Restaurant & Bar on Lake Boone Trail on Wednesday, June 22. The event will begin at 6 p.m., with Versus’ television coverage beginning at 7 p.m. Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner is one of three finalists for the 2011 Calder Trophy, which honors the NHL’s top rookie.

The Awards Party will feature appearances by Hurricanes radio voice Chuck Kaiton, Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad and Ron the Ref, as well as games, raffles and contests. Fans will also have the opportunity to take their pictures on the “red carpet” with members of the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad.

Update: Tom Barrasso, Hurricanes assistant coach and recipient of the 1984 Calder Trophy and Vezina Trophy, will be in attendance from 6:15-7:00 p.m. Barrasso will offer insight on his experience in 1984 and also talk hockey with Chuck Kaiton.
