Short History of Carolina Hurricanes Hockey Team
The Hockey team of Carolina Hurricanes was formed in the year 1971 when the World Hockey Association (WHA) of New England Whalers merged with NHL in 1979. The merger became WHA-NHL, eventually renaming themselves as Hartford Whalers. Its first Stanley Cup win was during the 2005-2006 season where they defeated the Edmonton Oilers in four to three.
Carolina Hurricanes is the only team in North Carolina who has the ability of playing in Raleigh. In the first couple years of the team’s existence, they played in Boston Garden and Boston Arena as their home games. With the increase of difficulty in scheduling the games in Boston Garden, the owner made a choice of moving the team in Hartford Connecticut as the 1974-1975 season started. In January 11, 1975 the team had their first game play in front of the sell-out crowd in Hartford Civic Centre Coliseum and eventually maintained their home in that place through 1997.
Being one of the greatest stable teams of WHA, Carolina Hurricanes together with the Winnipeg Jets, Quebec Nordiques and Edmonton Oilers; they were considered by the NHL upon the merging of the rival leagues in 1979. Since the NHL already had the team in the area of New England, Boston Bruins which is the former WHA team has been renamed as Hartford Whalers.
The Carolina Hurricanes made the national waves in 2002 playoffs just for the first time. Kevin Weekes and Arturs Irbe became solid in making goals resulting to the winning of two games in an overtime putting away Devils within six games. The team became poised of picking up by the time they were left off on the season of 200-2003 and never recovered in their loss in January. Paul Maurice being the coach of the team was terminated because of the low performance of the team.
