A few talking points for Sunday from the world of promotions and fan development:
- Before the game, join us for the return of the front lawn parties with music from The Jones, inflatables, street hockey and food and beverage for purchase. Keep an eye on the weather as if it is raining, the party will be cancelled. Womp womp womp…We are scheduled to get started at 3:00 p.m.
- On the way in you all will receive a Joe Corvo poster, compliments of 96rock.
- We are teaming up with Pepsi on a great initiative to help Haiti, check out the full overview here.
- Former UNC basketball player Eric Montross will be sounding the Hurricanes Warning Siren. Montross was a two-time All-American and a member of the 1993 National Championship team. Montross currently covers UNC basketball games on their radio network.
- After the Canes take on the Bruins, we will once again be expanding on our post game experiences. In our second Snap Shot Sunday, fans of all ages can come down on the ice and have their picture taken at center ice and in the penalty box. During the game fans can pick up waivers at the Promotions kiosk outside of 108/109. Following the game fans can line up at the top of 115/115. We will have staff to assist in taking pictures, but we ask that you bring your own camera.
On a side note, congrats to tennis player, Canes supporter and Greensboro native John Isner
for advancing to the fourth round of the Australian Open. Isner has followed the Canes since they first moved to NC and continues to keep a close eye on the team. Currently residing in Florida, he still manages to catch the team a few times a year in person when taking on Southeast Division opponents in FL. Many of you all may have seen Isner when he joined us in December to sound the Hurricanes Warning Siren.
Isner stands at 6-9 and is coming off his first professional championship a week ago at the Heineken Open in Auckland, New Zealand. As an individual that has not followed tennis closely outside of Agassi, Isner is a fun player to watch, a class act off the court and most importantly a Caniac!
See you all on Sunday for the 5:00 p.m. puck drop!
