All the excitement and the top stars of the NHL sit under 70 miles from your front door at Belmont Lake Preserve. The Hurricanes’ franchise has become the driving force in the rise in popularity of ice hockey in North Carolina since relocating to Greensboro from Hartford, Connecticut prior to the 1997-98 season. Just two years later the team moved up the road to Raleigh into the PNC Arena (then called the RBC Center) where they have built one of the league’s most loyal fan followings over the course of their 15-plus seasons in the city.

Despite dropping that best-of-seven series to the Detroit Red Wings, the Hurricanes would remain an NHL powerhouse over the course of the next several seasons, returning to hockey’s “promised land” and battling their way back to the cup finals again just four years later at the end of the 2004-05 season. This time, Carolina would refuse to be denied however, as they won a thrilling seven game series to bring the prestigious Stanley Cup home to Raleigh as world champions.
