Skate with the Canes allows fans and players to interact in an intimate environment by rotating through autographs, locker room photos and skating sessions in small groups of 200. The players will rotate stations opposite event attendees so that all fans get one station with each different player grouping. Stormy and the Pepsi Storm Squad will also be on hand throughout the event. Fans may bring their own skates for the ice session, or pick up a complimentary rental pair. Attendees should bring their own cameras for the photo session. Children 13 years of age and younger must be accompanied by an adult with a ticket.
