The Carolina Hurricanes are making their Oct. 1 exhibition game against the Atlanta Thrashers free to the public.

Distribution of general admission tickets for the 1:30 p.m. game will begin at the third annual 'Canes Summer FunFest on July 16, at 5:30 p.m. at the RBC Center, and will continue at Hurricanes promotional appearances throughout the summer.

Fans seeking tickets on Friday can pick up a maximum of eight per person.

The game will serve as the Hurricanes' "European sendoff," and is being played at 1:30 p.m., as the team will depart for St. Petersburg, Russia, afterward. Carolina will play an exhibition game on Oct. 4 against SKA St. Petersburg of the Kontinental Hockey League before traveling to Helsinki, Finland, for two regular-season games against the Minnesota Wild as part of the 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere.
Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
