Hurricanes owner to be inducted into US Hockey Hall of Fame

Posted July 25, 2013

Peter Karmanos, owner and CEO of the Carolina Hurricanes, will be inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013, according to a statement released by USA Hockey Thursday morning.

Four others will join Karmanos in the Hall: former NHL stars Doug Weight and Bill Guerin, women’s hockey pioneer Cindy Curley and former collegiate coach Ron Mason.

Weight was a member of the 2006 Hurricanes’ Stanley Cup team.

Karmanos purchased the Hartford Whalers on June 28, 1994, and moved the franchise to Raleigh on May 6, 1997. Since then, the Hurricanes have reached the conference finals three times, the Stanley Cup Finals twice and brought home the Stanley Cup in 2006.

USA Hockey honored Karmanos for his work to grow the game of hockey on many different levels in the United States for more than five decades including the ECHL’s Florida Everblades, the OHL’s Plymouth Whalers and the Compuware youth hockey program in Michigan.

    ...That is actually a good point, saying cheap shot, since it does relate to a cheap skate...Keep up the good work sucker...Karmanos will gladly accept your money for another losing season.

    WOW! Thank you sir, for your post. You prove my point: Canes players are so much more approachable than other NHL players. It's terrific that you took the time to post.

    VERY happy to see Mr. Karmanos inducted into the HOF. The Canes are a wonderful asset to North Carolina, and they give so much back to the community. These guys are pro players, but are so much more approachable than most NHL players. I'm so glad the Canes call Raleigh, North Carolina home!

    should be in the "Cheapskate Hall of Fame"

    Congratulations on this honor! Well deserved.

    Win, lose, or draw, the Canes are, without question, a HUGE asset to this community. They have added a tremendous amount to the standard of living and the attractiveness of the Triangle area.

    I was one of the ones who ate their words (and gladly so) when Mr. Karmanos moved the franchise here. Never thought it'd take off or last. Now, like thousands of other southerners, I'm a loyal hockey fan. Great fun to watch.

    Thanks Mr. K for all you've done for the area.

    Congratulations on this honor. Raleigh and our State is fortunate to have a Professional team. Go Canes.

  • caniacman Jul 25, 2013

    This is more then just the NHL team, he has done a lot of youth hockey and hockey at all levels.
    It is well deserved.

    Congratulations Mr. Karmanos!

    I have not met another person or family who have been so instrumental in promoting our game. From the NHL, all the way down to grass-roots youth hockey in North Carolina, Michigan, Florida, Mr. Karmanos has been so very generous in what he has given to the sport and to us players. Thank you!
