— There’s another chance for Carolina Hurricanes fans to watch their team play outdoors next year.

The NHL announced Wednesday more tickets will go on sale for the Feb. 18 game against the Washington Capitals at NC State’s Carter-Finley Stadium as part of the NHL’s “Stadium Series.”

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster starting at $215. It was not clear how many will be available.

Earlier this month, the Canes sold out of their original allotment of 18,660 tickets – matching the number of seats in PNC Arena – from the NHL within three hours, general manager Don Waddell said Thursday.

The team “begged” for more tickets, Waddell said, eventually receiving 30,000 total tickets. The NHL only wanted to give 20,000, Waddell said. Hurricanes’ season-ticket holders bought all 30,000 tickets.

“Of all the games that the NHL has put on over the last 13 years, it’s the most tickets sold to a season-ticket base of any franchise,” Waddell said.

Capacity at Carter-Finley Stadium for the game is expected to be around 51,500. The NHL offers tickets to each franchise to sell for Stadium Series games and keeps some tickets for sponsors and partners, Waddell said.
