While NHL hockey is in its offseason, the Carolina Hurricanes are looking ahead. The first step — announcing a preseason schedule. While the Hurricanes may have been a little late to the party, on May 25, the organization made an official announcement through X.


The season officially begins in Tampa, Florida, on September 24. The Canes take on the Lightning at 7 pm EST.

The Canes have a short break before taking on the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Florida Panthers, on September 27, at home in Raleigh at PNC Arena. The next evening, the Hurricanes will travel down to Sunrise to play Florida on their home ice. Both games will be held at 7 pm EST.

October starts a new slate of preseason games for the Hurricanes. The team hosts the Nashville Predators at home on October 2 at 7 p.m. The organization hosts Tampa Bay on October 4, again at 7 p.m. The final preseason game will be in Nashville, Tennessee, on October 5. The Predators host the Hurricanes at 5 p.m.

Ticketing and television information are TBD.

This season’s preseason games slate in a new era of the Carolina Hurricanes, and the rest of the hockey community can expect Carolina fans to be just as excited as they were this past spring during playoffs.
