It was almost a year ago when the Carolina Hurricanes announced their partnership with Wake Competition Center, the Morrisville multi-sports complex that would house the team's new practice facility.
As President and General Manager Don Waddell spoke, the state-of-the-art, twin-rink venue behind him was only an active construction site, a simple frame of a 115,000 square-foot facility.
"We're going to have everything we need here," Waddell said. "We'll call this home."
And now, the Canes are home.
