Carolina Hurricanes getting an NHL all-star game; announcement coming Thursday

The Carolina Hurricanes will soon host an NHL all-star game.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is scheduled to attend a news conference in Raleigh on Thursday afternoon for what the team called a "major" announcement. Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said the team will host an all-star game at the RBC Center in one of the next three seasons, though he didn't confirm which year.

The franchise hosted the 2004 NHL draft and the area has since added more high-end hotel rooms and opened a new convention centre that the league had said were needed to attract the all-star game.
