Gary Bettman promises multiple important events to an American city after they sign a new lease

Today the Carolina Hurricanes announced that they have officially signed a brand new lease with the City of Raleigh for the next 20-years. This deal includes a significant investment of nearly $300,000,000 to help grow the area.
With this significant investment, Gary Bettman has made a promise to the Hurricanes that they will receive multiple events following the completion of the investment process.
The Hurricanes previously held the All-Star Game in 2011, so it hasn't even been 15 years since their last event. The promise of this event continues to leave teams like the Seattle Kraken without a history of holding these events, once again proving growing the game doesn't matter and that it's money that makes the world go around in Gary Bettman's NHL.
