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 just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
