The most important day in Carolina Hurricanes history is May 6, 1997, when the Hartford Whalers announced their move to Raleigh, becoming the first NHL franchise in North Carolina. Adam Gold looks back at how it all happened, the growing pains of turning Raleigh into a hockey town, and what we learned along the way. A production of 99.9 The Fan and Capitol Broadcasting Company. Episodes can also be found in the "Canes Corner" podcast, where Adam previews and recaps Canes' games throughout the season.
