Hurricanes Yard Sale and Food Drive at PNC Arena This Weekend

Oct. 3 - 4, 2020

The Carolina Hurricanes Yard Sale on the floor of PNC Arena features merchandise markdowns up to 75% off, new and game-used hockey equipment, autographed collectibles, exclusive memorabilia and more.

If you’re a Canes Season Ticket Member, you have access to the yard sale on Saturday from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. The yard sale will be open to the public on Sunday at those same times.

Parking, maps, and additional sale details can be found here.


Also on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m - 1 p.m. the Hurricanes, in partnership with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, will host a food drive to benefit families in need during the COVID-19 health crisis.

Volunteers from Inter-Faith Food Shuttle will collect non-perishable food items in the 4000 lot on the North end of PNC Arena near Donnie MacMillian Way. Fans may stop by to donate food even if they do not plan to attend the yard sale, and the Hurricanes have established protocols to ensure all donations can be made safely. All food collected will be donated in support of COVID-19 relief, supporting children and families in need – particularly children who typically receive free and reduced lunch. Suggested food items include:

· Canned fruit and vegetables
· Rice, pasta and pasta sauce
· Cereal boxes and oatmeal
· Canned soup
· Canned chicken and tuna
· Canned/dry beans

Additional details about the Food Drive can be found here and on the Yard Sale page.

  • And some — uh — not so fine moments.
  • A Lightning fan’s “Shoot!” misunderstanding turns into a big score, inspiring t-shirts that will help Tampa-area domestic violence organizations. [ESPN]

  • Now that they’ve pulled it off, the question is: Will we ever see a bubble again? The NHLPA says not for a full season, but a hybrid bubble might be a possibility at least to start the season. [TSN]
  • The King is gone but not forgotten. On Wednesday the Rangers said goodbye to a franchise legend, future HHOF member, and one of the best goaltenders to ever play the game. [Rangers]
  • Following the Rangers buyout, what’s next for Henrik Lundqvist? Here are six potential landing spots (you might recognize one of them). [CBS Sports]
  • The draft is next, with free agency to follow. Then … what? A lot of thoughts, 31 of them in fact, about everything up in the air (including a contract extension for a young Russian forward who hung a hattie on Lundqvist in his final game as a Ranger). [Sportsnet]
  • It’s time for the draft bonanza edition of Tweetmail! In which Michael Smith addresses the question on everyone’s mind: Will the Hurricanes draft any prospects yes or no? [Canes]

  • Using a point system adapted from the NFL, the Athletic evaluated the post-season performances of all 31 NHL teams to see who ranked the best in the salary cap era. Tune in to see how your favorite team fared. [The Athletic $]
  • There’s a new number one on TSN’s 50-player Trade Bait board, along with 20 new names. The frozen cap makes ‘franchise-changing’ players available, including a Boston netminder who is rumored to be part of trade discussion talks. [TSN]
  • Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) is the most common form of dementia for people under age 60. The Association for FTD launched a Hot Shot Challenge to raise funds and awareness of the little-known disorder, and if you’re top five in Norris Trophy voting, you’re not one to back down from a challenge.
  • Finally, DO NOT SKIP PAST THIS. How does Jim Farley, the new CEO of Ford Motor Company and cousin to the late Chris Farley, have anything to do with the Carolina Hurricanes? Well, it’s about Farley’s OTHER celebrity cousin, someone we all know and love. This is AMAZING. [Detroit Free Press]
