by Terrell Williams / Carolina Hurricanes
RALEIGH, NC – The National Hockey League today announced the cancellation of the balance of the league’s exhibition schedule, due to the absence of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL Players’ Association and the NHL.

Included in today’s cancellations are the Carolina Hurricanes’ contest against the Montreal Canadiens in Quebec City on Oct. 2, the team’s game in Montreal on Oct. 3 and its preseason finale at PNC Arena against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

In addition, the Hurricanes today announced measures to recognize the loyalty of season ticket holders who keep their money on account with the team, should a new agreement not be reached in time to play a full regular season schedule:

  1. 5% simple interest on money kept in ticket accounts (accrued beginning September 16, 2012 through the duration of the work stoppage), which can be used toward additional 2012-13 regular season or playoff tickets, or toward 2013-14 season ticket renewals
  2. 10% discount off the season ticket price for the 2013-14 season
  3. 5% discount off the season ticket price for the 2014-15 season

The team has established a frequently asked questions (FAQ) page on to address further concerns season ticket holders may have.
