Among the new investors is Mark Rein, vice president and co-founder of Epic Games, a video game development company based in Cary, N.C. Among games produced by Epic Games is the Gears of War series for Xbox 360. Rein's wife, Tara, also has invested in the Hurricanes.

"I am pleased to welcome Mark and Tara Rein, Chuck Hammel and the others to the Hurricanes family."

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
