Canes to Hold Third Annual Alumni Game
Francis, Brind\'Amour, Hedican and Wesley will be among the alumni to play with paying participants in the game at PNC Arena.
RALEIGH, NC – The National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes will hold their third-annual Alumni Fantasy Game on Sunday, April 6 at 3 p.m. Admission and parking are free and no ticket is required, but fans can make an optional donation to the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation at the door. Doors will open at 2 p.m., and seating is general admission on the East side of the arena. Fans who make a minimum $10 donation at the door will receive a 32 oz. Alumni Game cup, which features trading card-style images of former Canes players.

Eleven Hurricanes alumni are scheduled to participate in the 2014 Alumni Fantasy Game. Ron Francis will captain the red team, which also includes Bret Hedican, Glen Wesley, Robert Kron, Steve Rice and Tripp Tracy. Rod Brind’Amour captains the white team, featuring Bates Battaglia, Jesse Boulerice, Aaron Ward and Shane Willis. The alumni are joined by individuals who made donations to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation to be a part of the game.

Hurricanes Play-by-Play Announcer John Forslund will call the game on the video board, and Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad and host Amber Jaye will also be a part of the game experience. The Hurricanes’ coaching staff will work the benches for the game, which will be no-hitting, with three running-clock periods and 15-minute intermissions. The off-ice activities will be similar to a Carolina Hurricanes home game with a true, game-day experience from CanesVision and the promotions team. There will be normal intermissions and two TV timeouts per period, all filled with promotions, contests and interviews with Hurricanes alumni. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation will be offering a silent auction during the game, which will include the Alumni-Game-worn jerseys of Ron Francis and Rod Brind’Amour as well as other rare Hurricanes memorabilia. The winners of the Francis and Brind’Amour sweaters will receive them in a special post-game meet-and-greet.

A Fan Guide for the 2014 Carolina Hurricanes Alumni Game is available on www.CarolinaHurricanes.com/AlumniGame.

The Kids ‘N Community Foundation provides much-needed funding to children’s charities and educational initiatives throughout North Carolina. The Foundation has funded scholarship programs, youth hockey, educational and literacy efforts, children’s health programs, the arts and other youth-related initiatives. The Kids ‘N Community Foundation will donate more than $500,600 to local children’s charities during the 2013-14 season. Annually, the Foundation provides cash and in-kind contributions of more than $1 million to charitable and educational programs in North Carolina. Each member of the Hurricanes organization is actively involved in the community, and the Hurricanes take great pride in the ability to have a positive impact in the state.
