Crosby One of Four Players Featured on 2011 All-Star Banner

Yesterday, the Carolina Hurricanes unveiled the logo for the 2011 All-Star Game which the team will be hosting at the end of January.

“The primary color of the logo is a tribute to the Hurricanes and their legion of fans, the ‘Caniacs,’ who display their team pride by wearing red during home games at the RBC Center. Also, the holding shape is consistent with the Hurricanes’ primary logo. With the 2011 NHL All-Star Game being played in the state capital of North Carolina, Raleigh, and the popularity of the Hurricanes stretching well beyond the Triangle, inspiration for the banners along the top and bottom of the logo is derived from the official flag of the state of North Carolina.”

A banner featuring four of today's brightest NHL stars will be applied as a window treatment on the west side of the RBC Plaza facing, Fayetteville Street to promote the All-Star weekend.  Application of the window treatment will begin this week and should be finished this Saturday for the Raleigh Wide Open 5.  The banner is 5,000 square feet!
