A National Hockey League franchise has reached peak desperation and as a result they will be handing out free tickets for two of their games during the 2017-2018 season.
This week the Carolina Hurricanes that they would be handing out a free pair of tickets, maximum one pair per household, for either their games against the Columbus Blue Jackets on October 10th or their game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on October 24th.
As many fans will know the Hurricanes had a catastrophic attendance last season, and this feels like a rather desperate attempt to help boost interest in their team, a team that admittedly should be better this season.
Whether or not the plan works, only time will tell. If you would like to get your pair of free tickets you can do so here.
