Road Trip to Raleigh
Fan Fair and Fanfare
Just got to the Umstead hotel, (courtesy of our driver Oscar) and I am currently indulging in some quality Carolina BBQ: pulled pork sliders. Upon the conclusion of my meal, I will head directly to Fan Fair.

After Fan Fair, next up is the Red Carpet. Due to the formality of the event, I will not be sporting my authentic team Sweden Lundqvist jersey. The Carolina Hurricanes’ own, rookie Jeff Skinner, has certainly been the talk of Fan Fair. I am looking forward to seeing the ovation he receives tonight at the skills competition.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
