RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- No NHL Stadium Series game has ever sold as much merchandise in one day as the one in Raleigh on February 18.
The NHL said the previous record holder was the NHL Stadium Series in Pittsburgh in 2017. Raleigh's event beat that record by 2.4 percent.
The sales numbers were great in person and online, as NHLShop.com also set a record on Feb. 18.
The merchandising success is just another success story for Raleigh's argument that it is a premiere hockey market.
