The Carolina Hurricanes having been hovering close to the playoffs the past few seasons, and this year could be the one they finally break through. Take it from veteran right wing Justin Williams, who won a Stanley Cup with the 'Canes in 2006 and was signed to a 2-yr, $9M contract: "I really like this team and like where it's going." Last season, it was left winger Jeff Skinner leading the way with 63 points. The exciting rookie Finnish winger Sebastian Aho made a splash last season, scoring 24 goals and becoming the youngest player in 'Canes franchise history to record a hat trick. Aho is a fantastic skater with incredible shiftiness and ability to create plays; PNC Arena sky boxes are the perfect way to watch this budding star. Centers Victor Rask and Jordan Staal will also return and look to continue to improve this team
In 2017, the Hurricanes will host many opponents, including the St. Louis Blues, Anaheim Ducks, Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Los Angeles Kings.
