The annual Jimmy V Golf Classic is scheduled for this Sunday, August 22, and as always the Carolina Hurricanes will be well represented.  This year's participants include:  Rod Brind`Amour, Erik Cole, Joe Corvo, John Forslund, Paul Maurice, Chuck Kaiton, Chad LaRose, and ex-Cane Bates Battaglia.     

For a complete list of scheduled attendees, check out this link.  

This year's tournament will be held at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course at NC State and the event will start at 8:30 a.m.  Check here for ticket information.  It's obviously a worthwhile event to attend and also a great opportunity to obtain all the autographs you can handle.

Speaking of charities and good causes, Eric Staal recently donated all the hats thrown to the ice after his most recent hat trick last season, to local hospitals.  Over 350 hats were delivered to Duke and UNC hospitals last week with another 150 plus sent to REX on Monday of this week.  MyNC was there last week and has this report.  Apparently, the hats are frozen for three days to make sure they are germ free.

The Carolina Hurricanes are promoting their own golf tournament and also have a story about the hat donation at this link.

Just another benefit of having an NHL team in the local area.
