There's no official rule about the use of first initials, so my hunch is the equipment staff wanted to do whatever would be easiest to do, especially given it was the last home game and next to last game of the season. FWIW the 'Canes have always been a little weird with first initial use. For instance in 2005-2006 we had two Wards and two Adams. Both Cam and Aaron were just "WARD," Kevyn Adams was "ADAMS" and Craig Adams was "C. ADAMS." I can understand with the two Wards since one was a goalie (and the backup at that) and the other was a defenseman, but considering Kevyn and Craig were both forwards who played on the same line, I'm a little surprised it wasn't "K. ADAMS" and "C. ADAMS."
