A source close to the Carolina Hurricanes told me a week ago or so that an announcement was coming soon about Raleigh and the Hurricanes hosting the 2011 NHL All-Star game. More and more signs point to that announcement coming tomorrow.
According to Dan London, John Forslund all but announced it on ‘620 the Buzz’ in Raleigh this morning. Add that to what my source told me as well as the fact that Gary Bettman will host a press conference regarding future NHL All-Star Games in Raleigh on Thursday and you can put two and two together. This will be a great thing for Raleigh who also got a fantastic music festival in the fall.
