In 1997 the team would move to North Carolina and PCN Arena as its home. It would take the hurricanes less than 10 years to find its yea to victory and win it all.

Carolina Hurricanes Rumors
Not a lot of rumors are circling around the North Carolina Hurricanes these days. The team is firmly planted in North Carolina and I doubt it would move any time soon. They just signed a new Head Coach this year so no rumors there. They have however rumors around Staalâ€™s leg injury though. The rumor is basically howl long will he be out after his surgery ? Its been said 3 to 4 months its also been reported longer. I know Hurricane fans would love to have him day one of the regular season but it will not happen. Hereâ€™s hoping for a quick recovery.
