The Carolina Hurricanes will hold the third annual Alumni Fantasy Game on Sunday at 3 p.m. at PNC Arena.

Admission and parking are free, but fans can make a donation to the Carolina Hurricanes Kids ‘N Community Foundation at the door.

Doors will open at 2 p.m., and seating is general admission on the East side of the arena. Fans who make a minimum $10 donation at the door will receive a 32 oz. Alumni Game cup, which features trading card-style images of former Canes players.

Eleven Hurricanes alumni are scheduled to participate. Ron Francis will captain the red team, which also includes Bret Hedican, Glen Wesley, Robert Kron, Steve Rice and Tripp Tracy. Rod Brind’Amour will captain the white team, featuring Bates Battaglia, Jesse Boulerice, Aaron Ward and Shane Willis.

The alumni are joined by individuals who made donations to the Kids ‘N Community Foundation to be a part of the game.

Hurricanes play-by-play announcer John Forslund will call the game on the video board.
