RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes say there aren't any updates in their search for a new minority partner.

General manager Jim Rutherford said Monday there's no news on the plan of owner Peter Karmanos Jr. to find a new minority investor in the team.

Karmanos had said in May that he hired an investment bank to help him find a new minority investor. General partner Thomas Thewes died in 2008.

Rutherford spoke at a press conference to unveil the logo for this season's all-star game. Karmanos Jr. was scheduled to attend the unveiling of the logo, but cancelled his appearance Monday morning.

The logo features the outline of the team's symbol with a superimposed star doubling as a hyphen in the word "all-star."

The game is Jan. 30 at the RBC Center.
