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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
