Panthers Cancel Game: Hurricanes Won't Have to Weather Storm

Stormwarning The Panthers just called letting me know that Wednesday's preseason game between the Carolina and Panthers has been canceled due to the tropical storm.

We're currently under a tropical storm warning in case Channel 7 hadn't told you enough times.

Will have more details later, but according to team spokesman Justin Copertino, those with tickets for tomorrow's game can cash them in for a regular season game at a later date.

The Panthers will hold a practice tomorrow morning at The Billboard, so I'll have more On Frozen Films and such then.

Check back here for more storm updates.

From the Panthers:

The Florida Panthers announced today that their home preseason game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday, Sept. 29, has been canceled due to the threat DSCN0327 of severe weather conditions associated with Tropical Storm Nicole.

“We felt that it was in the best interest and safety of our fans, our players and the Carolina Hurricanes to cancel Wednesday’s game due to the threat of the impending tropical storm,” said Florida Panthers Executive Vice President/General Manager Dale Tallon. “We look forward to seeing all our fans on Friday night when we host the Tampa Bay Lightning.”

Wednesday night’s preseason game will not be re-scheduled. All fans holding tickets purchased for tomorrow night’s game can log onto www.floridapanthers.com and will be able to exchange their tickets for a select Panthers regular season game.

They must not have sold enough tickets for the game! They are offering to replace the tickets with tickets for select games. If they really wanted to be a fan friendly team, offer for any game besides opening night!
