More From The Hurricanes
For the third season in a row, the Carolina Hurricanes will sport new threads when they hit the ice.
In 2017, in conjunction with the league-wide shift from Reebok to Adidas, the Hurricanes gave their red, home uniforms a facelift with modern takes on a classic design.
In 2018, the Canes debuted new black third jerseys, anchored by a powerful and evolved secondary logo.
Today, the Canes unveiled the latest addition to their uniform collection: a revamped white road kit featuring a bold and unique design.
The team’s new road uniform includes a number of eye-catching elements, the most dominant of which is the red “Canes” wordmark, introduced in 2018, arranged diagonally as the crest of the jersey; it’s an element of a classic hockey sweater but it’s something unique to the Canes’ uniform history.
Warning flags have returned to the waistline of the white jersey with the same sublimated, tone-on-tone pattern introduced with the redesigned home uniform in 2017. Sandwiching the warning flag stripe along the waste are two, thin black stripes. This black-red-black striping pattern is repeated (minus the warning flags) on both the sleeves and socks of the new road uniform.
The shoulder of the previous road sweater featured a red yoke, which dropped down the back to also house the nameplate. The shoulder design of the new jersey boasts a cleaner, more modern aesthetic – the red yoke was removed in favor of an all-white base, and the team’s secondary logo sits on both shoulders.
The nameplate and number fonts, consistent across all three uniform sets, are now red with black trim, the color palette utilized on the white jerseys prior to a 2013 redesign (black with gray trim).
The collar of the sweater is predominantly white with red trim, with the NHL shield prominently displayed at the base. The tone-on-tone warning flag pattern adorns the inside of the collar, a feature seen on the home and third jerseys, as well.
The white helmet introduces a 3-D raised decal of an alternate version of the Canes’ primary logo, an incredibly unique element compared to the typical sticker application.
The pants (red) and gloves (red with black trim) remain unchanged from the previous iteration of the team’s road uniform set.
The resulting product is a bold addition to the Hurricanes’ uniform collection, a white road kit that is quite unlike anything the team has ever worn. Together, the team has assembled three diverse uniform sets, with each jersey featuring a different, yet unquestionably Canes crest.
