RALEIGH, NC—On Sunday, Jan. 10, the Carolina Hurricanes will host ASC Construction Equipment Volvo Rents Military Appreciation Night presented by USfalcon, as the team takes on the Ottawa Senators at 5 p.m. This marks the seventh season that the Hurricanes have hosted Military Appreciation Night as an opportunity to thank servicemen and women for their contributions, as well as raise awareness about the branches of the military.
