Carolina Hurricanes Playoff TicketsThe Carolina Hurricanes got its start as the New England Whalers from 1972-1979. The team became the Hartford Whalers in 1979 until it was sold in 1996. In 1996, the Whalers moved to Raleigh, N.C., and officially took the name of the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997. The owner, Peter Karmanos, Jr., chose the name Hurricanes after the devastating storms known to ravage the Carolinas. The Hurricanes franchise has been through quite a few changes over the years, starting out with the World Hockey Association, then becoming part of the NHL and, of course, moving from Boston to Hartford to Raleigh. One major change was when the team’s current coach, Rod Brind’Amour, took over. Brind’Amour, the team’s 14th head coach, has a history with the Hurricanes. He played for the Carolina Hurricanes and is one of the few jerseys the team has ever retired. The Hurricanes team has won one Stanley Cup in 2006, and it also played two games into the 2019 playoffs. Head to StubHub to pick up tickets for Carolina Hurricanes playoff games.
