Canes tickets hottest thing on ice

Posted January 16, 2013
Updated January 17, 2013

— Carolina Hurricanes fans swarmed the box office at PNC Arena on Wednesday, snapping up tickets to the team's abbreviated 2013 season.

After the NHL resolved its four-month lockout last week, hockey-starved fans couldn't wait for a chance to see the Canes back in action.

"Woo-hoo! Club level for the first game of the season, opening night," Christy Bullins said. "I've been waiting. The last time I went to a game is when I got proposed to."

"I love the Hurricanes," David Seipp said. "I'm glad they're back. Can't wait to go to opening night. I'll be cheering loud, wearing my red."

To boost ticket sales, the team plans various promotions and discounts throughout the spring.

As of Wednesday evening, single seats were still available throughout the arena for the home opener next Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    JGunn - support the players? Really? You support icebrains that whined about making $ millions? The icebrains don't realize that a small market team like Carolina cannot support the mega-salaries these mega-dense players want.

    Karmanos and other owners did what they had to do to keep hockey in small markets. Even with these changes, the jury is still out on the long-term viability of Carolina, Tampa Bay, Florida, Phoenix, and Nashville. If these teams fold, there will be less spots on NHL teams for icebrains to make their $ millions.

  • same ole story Jan 17, 9:22 a.m.

    To boost ticket sales, single-game tickets for any of the 24 home games are 50 percent off through Thursday.

    Keep this promotion up for the rest of the season if you REALLY WANT TO MAKE AMENDS!!!!!!! I'll wait until I see the product first before my hard earned cash is spent on these guys. Canes always start out flat. Don't forget the rest of the league is playing with the exact same sense of urgency as the Canes!!

    All of you lining up to pay $90 for a seat that used to cost $8 at Dorton arena. Then once inside you'll be buying $8 beers (they were $3 at Dorton). You go right ahead... you can have the seat they built for me. I'd rather have the Icecaps back.

    Glad the Canes are back playing but it is very annoying as a season ticket holder that I am... View More

    Except we earned interest on our Ticket plans, get discounts on future seasons, and will get compensated for games not played, plus the other bonuses they are kicking in to make up for it. I think it balances out. Sure, stinks, yes....but we still come out ahead. I havent got full info yet, but by my figures, we may get next season's tickets for next to nothing if I roll over the interest and unplayed games credits combined wth discounts. Works for me!
