Hurricanes to Host Alumni \'Fantasy Game\'
RALEIGH, NC – The National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes today announced plans to host their first-ever Alumni Fantasy Game on Sunday, April 1 at 3 p.m. The event will provide fans a chance to get an NHL experience, skating in a game that includes locally-based Hurricanes alumni on the ice at the RBC Center. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation.

Ten Hurricanes alumni are scheduled to participate in the Alumni Fantasy Game: Ron Francis, Rod Brind’Amour, Glen Wesley, Jesse Boulerice, Aaron Ward, Shane Willis, Robert Kron, Steve Halko, Steve Rice and Tripp Tracy. Participants will dress in the Hurricanes’ locker room and enjoy a game atmosphere in the arena, including Hurricanes Play-by-Play Announcer John Forslund’s call on the video board, Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad and more. Hurricanes Head Coach Kirk Muller and his staff will serve as coaches for the game, which will be no-hitting, with three running-clock periods and full intermissions. Fans not participating on the ice are welcome to watch the game free of charge, with an optional contribution to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation at the door.

Please note that the 30 participation slots available for this event have now sold out.

The entry fee for playing in the Alumni Fantasy Game is $1,500, and includes:
  • Participation in the game on the ice, and the full game-day player experience
  • A personalized, authentic Hurricanes jersey
  • Four lower-level tickets for the Hurricanes’ home game against the New Jersey Devils on March 31
  • A DVD of the Alumni Fantasy Game, as called by John Forslund
  • Access for four people to a post-game cocktail reception following the Alumni Fantasy Game

The Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much needed funding to children’s charities and education programs throughout North Carolina. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other children’s related initiatives. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Every member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in community activities and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in our state.
