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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
