The Scouting Report
More than halfway through the 2012–13 season, the Checkers remain neck-and-neck with the Texas Stars for the South Division's top spot. Two late-season games against the struggling division rival Rampage give the Checkers an ideal opportunity to secure their placement in the postseason. The team owes its success to a roster of potential NHL stars, including wingmen Chris Terry, who leads the team with 37 points in 47 games, and Jerome Samson, who donned a Canes jersey for 16 games last season, scoring two goals despite being new to the NHL's 400-pound pucks.
Though Charlotte Checkers history dates back nearly a half-century, today's Checkers made their AHL debut just recently in 2010. As the AHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, the team breeds young talent capable of performing in a professional environment while withstanding gale-force winds. Fans at Time Warner Cable Arena lend their support by drawing up backwards plays on the fogged-up glass, and mascot Chubby entertains the crowd by dancing and riding four-wheelers on the ice at intermission.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
