Canes to Host Draft Party at Rudino\'s Sports Corner
RALEIGH, NC – Jon Chase, Director of Community Relations and Promotions for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today confirmed details for the team’s 2013 NHL Draft Party at Rudino’s Sports Corner on Sunday, June 30. The event will begin at 2:30 p.m., with draft coverage starting at 3 p.m. on NBC Sports Network. The Hurricanes hold the fifth pick in the draft’s first round, and four other picks in Rounds 2-7. Unlike in previous years, the entire seven-round draft will take place on one day.

Hurricanes forward Kevin Westgarth will make an appearance at the Draft Party to interact with fans and team personality Ron the Ref will serve as emcee. Hurricanes Youth and Amateur Hockey Coordinator and 2001 NHL All-Rookie Team member Shane Willis also will be on hand to offer insight into the draft process and to comment on this draft’s top players, including Carolina’s selection.

As in the past, there will be games, raffles and contests throughout the Draft Party, including the annual Draft Challenge, where one fan will win a new Hurricanes jersey. Stormy and members of the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad will also be in attendance, and fans will have a chance to see the team’s new jerseys up close. Raffle prizes will include autographed items, rare memorabilia and items from The Eye team store.

This marks the fourth consecutive year Rudino’s Sports Corner has hosted the team’s draft party. Last year, fans watched as the Hurricanes packaged the eighth overall pick in a trade to acquire center Jordan Staal. In 2010, those gathered watched as eventual 2010-11 Calder Trophy winner Jeff Skinner was selected seventh overall, and in 2011 fans saw the team select defenseman Ryan Murphy who will play his first full professional season in 2013-14.

Rudino’s Sports Corner is located in the Olde Raleigh Village shopping center, at 3101 Edwards Mill Rd., at the corner of Edwards Mill and Duraleigh Rds.
