Promotions and Fan Development

The Carolina Hurricanes promotions department can bring excitement to any event.  Click here for more information on booking Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad, inflatables or street hockey.

The Promotions and Fan Development department strives to bring the benefits and excitement of hockey to all age levels. Through a wide range of promotions and fan development programs, the department not only connects with the biggest Caniacs but also reaches out to those who have never picked up a hockey stick before.

With a strong presence at PNC Arena, the Hurricanes promotions and fan development activities also extend into schools, the business community and other events throughout the Triangle and North Carolina. From the ever-popular Stormy and the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad to our involvement with youth hockey and educating fans at Hurricanes U, there is a way for everyone to catch Canes fever. Please search this section of the site to see what Hurricanes activities fit into your life.



Canes Youth and Amateur Hockey (CYAH)

In an effort to further strengthen our involvement in the the youth and amateur hockey community, Canes Youth and Amateur Hockey (CYAH) provides sponsorship and presence at all skill levels of youth hockey.
