A sellout appears likely for the return of hockey in South Florida.
As of Thursday morning, fewer than 1,000 tickets were available for the Florida Panthers-Carolina Hurricanes opener Saturday night at BB&T Center in Sunrise. Fewer than 75 tickets remained unsold in the lower bowl.
Opening night will feature the raising of the Southeast Division championship banner prior to the game. Every fan in attendance will receive a commemorative mini-banner and other fan-friendly promotions are planned.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. Saturday with the puck dropping at 7:30.
Ticket are available at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 954-835-PUCK.
