Raleigh, NC, United States (4E Sports) - The Carolina Hurricanes announced that they celebrate their 2006 Stanley Cup championship with two home games, a players' reunion and several activities for the fans this weekend.

"It is about the fans," said Brind'Amour , the captain of the Cup team. "It was a unique and special time for the franchise, and the fans had a lot to do with it. This is a 'thank you' for them."

A decade ago, Hurricanes fans caught the attention of the hockey world for their elaborate pre-game tailgate parties and made their mark at RBC Center when they stood throughout Game 7 of the Final against the Edmonton Oilers to win the Cup.

Key players from the team will take part in autograph sessions, and the Stanley Cup will be on display prior to games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders on Friday and Saturday, respectively.

Erik Cole, Niclas Wallin and Craig Adams will sign autographs prior to the game Friday on the PNC Arena concourse, and fans will receive a commemorative poster.

On Saturday, the Hurricanes will host a pregame on-ice ceremony honoring the team. Glen Wesley, Ray Whitney, Chad LaRose and Andrew Hutchinson will sign autographs.

More than a dozen players from the team will participate in the fifth annual Hurricanes Alumni Fantasy Game on Sunday. Fans who pay to play help raise money for the team's Kids 'N Community Foundation.

No tickets are required for the game, which will be coached by members of the Carolina coaching staff. Islanders assistant coach Doug Weight will stay in town for the game, joining Aaron Ward, Mike Commodore and others.
