Finland Here We Come: Hurricanes Will Open 2010-11 Season Overseas

If there were ever two teams destined to play in Eastern Scandinavia, it was the Finn-stocked Carolina Hurricanes and Minnesota Wild. Turns out that's exactly where they'll be kicking off the 2010-11 season.

The NHL announced this season’s lineup for the Compuware/NHL Premiere and Faceoff, and the Canes will meet the Wild in Helsinki Oct. 7 and 8. The Hurricanes are holding a 2 p.m. press conference where Carolina owner Peter Karmanos will presumably speak about the event. Compuware, the main sponsor for the overseas games, is also owned by Karmanos.

The Blue Jackets and Sharks will meet (Oct. 8 & 9) in Stockholm, Sweden, while Boston and Phoenix are set to faceoff (Oct. 9 & 10) in Prague, Czech Republic.

Bob will be at the RBC Center and will have more details following the press conference.
