Ahead of their game against the Washington Capitals on Thursday, the team received a hype-up video from Duke basketball star Zion Williamson, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2019 NBA Draft.
Williamson, clad in a Hurricanes T-shirt, had a message for the team and fans, which was to bring the enrgy and make PNC Arena as loud as possible.
The Hurricanes won Game 4 on Thursday 2-1. The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2. Game 5 is at Capital One Arena on Saturday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, SN360, SN1, TVAS).
