Hurricanes' new PNC Arena scoreboard put on hold for a year

The Centennial Authority’s building and construction committee has put on hold a new scoreboard for PNC Arena for a year. Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon had asked the authority, the arena’s landlord, to move up plans for a new blueline-to-blueline scoreboard and have it in place for the 2018-19 season. Committee chairman Steve Stroud said the authority would need more time to assess structural changes in the arena needed to install a scoreboard that could weigh 50,000 pounds.
