Adam Gold of 99.9 Fan in Raleigh reported Saturday afternoon that the Carolina Hurricanes is hosting the Stadium Series game next season at Carter-Finley Stadium, home of the NC State Wolfpack football team. The Washington Capitals were “most likely” noted to be their opponent, but it has been also reported that Capitals will not be their opponent for the February 20, 2021 game. The official announcement will come during tonight’s Los Angeles Kings/Colorado Avalanche Stadium Series matchup in Colorado Springs at Falcon Stadium.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are also another possible opponent. Hurricanes reporter Sara Civian of The Athletic reported the news as well.

This would have marked the Capitals’ second Stadium Series game and fourth overall outdoor game: 2011 Winter Classic in Pittsburgh, 2015 Winter Classic at Nationals Park against the Chicago Blackhawks, and 2018 Stadium Series game at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

NoVa Caps reported earlier this month that the Hurricanes asked the PNC Arena landlord to contribute $200-250K for a potential 2021 Stadium Series game.

UPDATE:

According to the Samantha Pell of The Washington Post, the Capitals will not be the opponent for the Hurricanes’ Stadium Series game.
