NHL all-star game 2011! Well, the big celebration for every ice-hockey fan is coming soon! Jan. 30, 2011 is not that far anymore! So, the 58th NHL all-star game 2011 will be held at the RBC Centher in Raleigh, North Carolina, home of the Carolina Hurricanes. The NHL all-star game 2011 had been previously announced to be held at the Jobbing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Phoenix Coyotes, but the NHL bosses changed that decision with the on-going ownership changes in the Coyotes organization. Too bad for you, Phoenix – this really was not the best time for that! Couldn’t you really do it after the NHL all-star game 2011?
Carolina President and General Manager Jim Rutherford and team owner Peter Karmonos, Jr. said hosting an NHL all-star game 2011 will offer a tremendous boon for the capital city of North Carolina. Not to mention the fact fans will absolutely go bonkers for NHL all-star game 2011.
The RBC Center drew the largest opening-day crowd (15,672) to witness an Entry Draft in over a decade on June 26, 2004, when it hosted the League’s annual selection process for the second time in franchise history. Rutherford and Karmonos also hosted the 1994 Entry Draft at the Civic Center when the team was located in Hartford. Although, I`ve heard rumors, that there will be only 12`000 tickets for the NHL all-star game 2011.
