Simply put, Peter Karmanos is open to selling the Carolina Hurricanes.
He's been on the hunt for a minority buyer the last few years, but appears open to the idea of moving on from the franchise entirely "depending on the offer." Which unfortunately is not specific enough to draw conclusions from, but may, hopefully, still hint at his desire to keep the Hurricanes in Carolina. Time will tell. Stay tuned. Jan 28 - 3:17 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes are 14-1-1 in their last 16 games at home.

We guess they sure like that home cooking as teams do not look forward to playing the Canes in Raleigh. "Everybody is having fun right now," Carolina forward Brock McGinn said. "We’re in the hunt for the playoffs and these are big games, big points every time you step on the ice. The home fans can definitely motivate you that much more."
Jan 15 - 8:13 AM

Carolina's performance at home compared to the road has been night and day.

Teams are expected to perform better at home, but the contrast with the Hurricanes is particularly severe. They have a 10-3-1 record at PNC Arena and are 5-8-6 everywhere else. That's the main reason the Hurricanes are seven points behind in the playoff race because while their home record stacks up well versus most of the competition in the Metropolitan Division, they've failed to largely break even on the road like Philadelphia (8-7-1) and Pittsburgh (7-6-3) or come out ahead like Washington (8-3-4), the Rangers (11-6-0), and Columbus (10-2-3).

Tonight's game between the Red Wings and Hurricanes has been rescheduled due to poor ice conditions.

The poor ice was due to an issue with PNC Arena's cooling system. The Red Wings simply couldn't wait any longer because they have a game against Tampa Bay tomorrow night. The league's rule states that the game needs to be underway at least 22 hours before the next game begins. The date and time of the rescheduled game hasn't been decided yet.

The game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Detroit Red Wings has been delayed because of poor ice conditions.

The game is taking place in Carolina and it was supposed to begin at 7:00 p.m. ET. There's no official word on how long the delay will last.

The Carolina Hurricanes are about to begin a three-game road trip, which will bring them to 18 road games in their first 28 contests.

"It has been an interesting schedule," Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said. "It started with six straight out of the gate on the road, and we’ve just had a grinding stretch. It’s not easy for a young team, going into different buildings to play, sleeping in hotels, the travel." That's a rough schedule to begin the season with, but the good news is that things get better for Carolina after that. Carolina is 10-10-5, so you could argue that the squad has managed to hold its own considering. At the same time, Cam Ward has been superb so far this season and the Hurricanes record could have been so much better had they provided him with a decent amount of offensive support.

The Carolina Hurricanes are 1-3-1 over their last five games despite holding the competition to just 11 goals over that span.

Carolina has been held to a single goal in three of those contests and scored two goals in another one of those games. "There are opportunities to score," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. "You have to bear down and you have to make a play. You have to make a bigtime play and make a difference." So far the early portion of the 2016-17 campaign is looking like a missed opportunity for Carolina. Goaltender Cam Ward has performed far better than expected, but the team's lack of offense has still left them with a mediocre 9-9-5 record.

The Carolina Hurricanes are the NHL's least valuable franchise according to Forbes evaluation.

Forbes listed the franchise as being worth $230 million. They also reported that the Hurricanes have an annual revenue of $99 million and an operating loss of $15 million. This is down from Carolina's placement of 28th in Forbes' 2015 list of NHL team franchises as the Florida Panthers and Arizona Coyotes surpassed them. Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. has said before that the team's value is higher than the Forbes evaluations.

The Carolina Hurricanes will finally play in their home opener on Friday.

The Hurricanes are the only team in the league that hasn't played at home yet. Instead Carolina began the season with six straight road games and the results were bad as the Hurricanes posted a 1-3-2 record. After playing against the Rangers Friday night, Carolina will host Philadelphia on Sunday, but then the Hurricanes are back on the road again. They won't get their first big homestead until Nov. 10-20 when they play five straight games in Carolina.

The Carolina Hurricanes have decided to enter the season without a captain.

Eric Staal served as the team captain from 2010-16 and it will take a little while longer to decide on his replacement. Instead the Hurricanes will have four alternate captains in Jeff Skinner, Jordan Staal, Justin Faulk, and Victor Rask.

The Carolina Hurricanes have assigned four to AHL Charlotte.

Daniel Altshuller, Clark Bishop, Erik Karlsson and Kyle Hagel will join Josh Wesley down on the farm. The Hurricanes could sorely use better goaltending and scoring depth, so if any of the above get hot, don't be surprised if they don a Hurricanes sweater before long.

The Hurricanes have given head coach Bill Peters a contract extension through the 2018-19 season.

"Bill is a talented, young coach in the National Hockey League," GM Ron Francis said. "We are happy that he has made a commitment to the Hurricanes, and that he will be a major part of the team continuing to grow." Carolina has posted a 65-72-27 record in his two seasons behind the bench. The club improved by 15 points from the 2014-15 campaign last year and Peters won a gold medal coaching Team Canada at the 2016 World Championship.

The Carolina Hurricanes are reporting a 40% increase in season-ticket sales.

Hurricanes president Don Waddell also said that overall ticket sales have increased by 60%. It helps that Carolina's season-ticket renewal rate is 90.15%, up from 87% by September 2015. "Every summer, we’ve been chasing our old business all summer," Waddell said. "This year, because we kept our prices flat … our renewals went much better than anyone could’ve hoped. Now our full sales team … (has) been able to work on bringing new customers and new fans into the fold." The Hurricanes ranked last in attendance last season with an average of 12,203 fans per home game, so this news is particularly encouraging.

The Carolina Hurricanes have a rough early schedule.

Carolina will spend its first six games of the 2015-16 campaign on the road before finally hosting its home opener against the Rangers on Oct. 28. From there it will host the Flyers on Oct. 30 before playing another two games away from home, bringing the Hurricanes' road game total up to eight in their first 10 contests. That parallels the 2015-16 schedule, which was just as road heavy to start the season. Carolina ended up with a 4-6-0 record over that span.

Carolina has 10 picks in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, including the 13th overall selection.

"We have accumulated 10 picks in this draft and 10 picks in the next draft. If there's an opportunity to parlay that into something that makes our team better, absolutely we're going to do that," said GM Ron Francis. "But our goal every year is to get into the playoffs. I know it's been tough and a struggle but I certainly think we're making strides toward that." Carolina is expected to focus on forwards in the draft because they need help offensively and they already have some good defense prospects. Logan Brown, Michael McLeod, Tyson Jost, Kieffer Bellows or Clayton Keller could be possibilities for Carolina in Round 1.
