Carolina Hurricanes Hockey is in Town
The Carolina Hurricanes entered the NHL as an expansion team in 1979, long before they moved to their current location. The team is very popular, both at home and away, making getting to a game tough at times. Are you looking for tickets to Carolina Hurricanes games? If so, you have your work cut out for you. We suggest starting your search with StubHub or SeatGeek to help speed up the process and ensure that you get the best seats for your money.
The Hurricanes haven’t been around as long as some teams, but they have formed some fierce rivalries over the years. Most notably, they have had rivals in the Detroit Red Wings and the Edmonton Oilers thanks to facing both of them in the Stanley Cup at different times. These rivalries are still fierce today, and tickets are hot when they face off with each other.
The Hurricanes have had a few players go on to the Hall of Fame over the years, although not all of them are enshrined as Hurricanes players. Gordie Howe, Dave Keon, and Bobby Hull both spent a short amount of time with the organization. The only two players that have entered the Hall with a Hurricanes jersey on are Ron Francis and Paul Coffey. Today’s team has a number of great players on it, but only time will tell whether they will receive this great honor or not.
The Hurricanes were founded in 1972 as the New England Whalers. It wasn’t until 1997 that they moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, and became known by their current name. With their home games played at the PNC Arena, the Hurricanes have grown increasingly in popularity since their relocation. Winning their first Stanley Cup Championship in 2006 didn’t hurt their popularity, either. It’s no secret that tickets to Carolina Hurricanes games can be big items, especially on the resale market. So, if you’re going to be in the area and want to catch a game, you’ll need to know where to look and when to buy if you want to get the best tickets possible for some Carolina hockey action.
