Carolina is coming off one of the best offseason performances of any team in the NHL. Gamblers have taken notice. Carolina enters the 202-23 season as one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup.

Carolina Hurricanes History

Founded as the New England Whalers in the upstart World Hockey Association in 1972, the franchise moved to Carolina in 1997. Carolina won the 2006 Stanley Cup championship.

In their first several years in Raleigh, North Carolina, the Hurricanes were like aliens in a different world. North Carolina is a college basketball country with generations of fans following the Atlantic Coast Conference. Hockey was always a minor league sport played in small arenas, followed by smaller die-hard fan cults. Thus, the Hurricanes' marketing and ownership had an arduous task of drawing interest. As is the case with any major sport, winning is the best marketing plan.

In their fifth season, the Hurricanes made the Stanley Cup Final, drawing interest from fans who thought ice was for their drinks when watching college basketball. And then, in 2006, Carolina won the Stanley Cup to entrench themselves in the state firmly. However, a lackluster period from 2007 through 2018 in which the Canes made the playoffs only once killed interest. Fortunately, Tom Dundon bought the game in 2018 and has ignited a franchise renaissance. Dundon is the type of unconventional owner that has proven to be the perfect match for an unconventional market.
