Canes Alumni \'Fantasy Game\' Set for April 1
RALEIGH, NC – The National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes today announced the festivities surrounding the team’s first-ever Alumni Fantasy Game, to be held on Sunday, April 1 at 3 p.m. Ten locally-based Hurricanes alumni, including Ron Francis, Rod Brind’Amour and Glen Wesley, will participate in the game at PNC Arena. The event is open to the public and free of charge, with an optional contribution to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation at the door.

The 10 alumni will be joined by 30 players who paid to participate in the Fantasy Game, and are broken into teams as follows:

WHITE TEAM RED TEAM
Rod Brind'Amour (C) Ron Francis (C)
Glen Wesley (A) Shane Willis
Jesse Boulerice Aaron Ward
Robert Kron Steven Halko
Tripp Tracy Steve Rice

One final spot has opened up for a paid participant to join the game, playing under Captain Rod Brind’Amour on the White Team. That slot is being auctioned online here. Players must be 18 years old and have hockey-playing experience. All proceeds from the purchase of spots in the Alumni Fantasy Game benefit the Kids ‘N Community Foundation.

For the fans attending the event, the Hurricanes will create 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. Food and beverage will be for sale in the arena, and the Kids ‘N Community Foundation will offer a silent auction during the game, featuring select game-worn jerseys from the Canes Alumni Game, as well as other rare Hurricanes memorabilia.

Doors open to all fans at 2 p.m. and seating will be general admission. Fans are asked to park and enter through the East side of PNC Arena, and parking is free of charge.

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.
