Actual, live hockey! With actual players! On actual NHL ice!
It's increasingly looking like the Checkers' previously scheduled January 6 game at PNC Arena against the Norfolk Admirals will be the first hockey game of any sort played in Raleigh during the 2012-13 season. At the very least, we know that this is one game that won't be cancelled.
(Now watch it snow three feet the day before the game and keep the Admirals from getting into town. The way this offseason has gone, would it surprise you? Me neither.)
Tickets go on sale November 1, with a presale available to Canes and Checkers season-ticket holders beginning October 29. For this game, only the first and second levels of the arena will be available, and if you ever wanted to explore life on the club level but didn't want to mortgage your house to do so, now's your chance: the cheapest tickets in the house are $15 seats in the club corners.
The release from the team follows the jump.
