|2013 NHL Draft Party
The Carolina Hurricanes will host a Draft Party at Rudino’s Sports Corner (located on the corner of Edwards Mill Rd. and Duraleigh Rd.) on Sunday, June 30. The event will begin at 2:30 p.m., with draft coverage starting at 3:00 p.m. The Carolina Hurricanes hold the 5th overall pick in the first round.
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 alumnus and current Youth and Amateur Coordinator Shane Willis will be in attendance to offer his insight on this year’s prospects and the Canes' pick, information only available at the official draft party of the Hurricanes at Rudino's Sports Corner. Drafted by the Canes in 1997, Willis will discuss what it was like to be drafted and the days and months leading up to the big day.
In addition to draft coverage, the event will feature raffles, games, contests, Stormy, the Eye Care Associates Storm Squad and more. Raffles will include limited-edition autographs, rare memorabilia and items from The Eye team store. As in years past, we will host our annual Draft Challenge in which the fan who correctly selects the most picks will win a new Carolina Hurricanes jersey. You will also get a chance to see the new home and away jerseys up close.
Join us on Sunday, June 30 beginning at 2:30 p.m. at Rudino’s Sports Corner!
