RALEIGH, NC – Peter Karmanos Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Owner and Governor of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that four new partners have joined in the ownership of the team. Epic Games Vice President and Co-Founder Mark Rein and his wife Tara, and PITT OHIO President and Owner Chuck Hammel join Hurricanes Holdings, along with two other investors who have chosen to keep their partnerships private.

“The continuing growth of our ownership group strengthens the Carolina Hurricanes’ position on the Triangle landscape and will help the team be competitive on the ice,” said Karmanos. “I am pleased to welcome Mark and Tara Rein, Chuck Hammel and the others to the Hurricanes family.”
