The Edmonton Oilers, Northlands and Bell are opening Rexall Place to the public to watch CBC's Hockey Night In Canada broadcasts of Oilers away games versus the Carolina Hurricanes during the Stanley Cup Finals.

"Weve heard from so many Oilers fans asking us to open up Rexall Place for away games," said Patrick LaForge, President & CEO of the Edmonton Oilers. "Thanks to our partners at Northlands, Ticketmaster, CBC and Bell, were proud to announce that the doors are opening for our fans!"

General admission tickets for the games will be available in advance only, and are priced at $5.00 each. Tickets for Games 1 & 2 will go on sale on Saturday, June 3 at 10:00 a.m., while supplies last.

As well, The Oilers Store on the main concourse of Rexall Place will be open for fans looking to outfit themselves in time for the game.
