Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today introduced the team’s new home and road uniforms for the 2013-14 season. While the team’s primary logo and colors remain the same, it marks the first time in the Hurricanes’ 15-year North Carolina history that they have made a head-to-toe change, including alterations to their home and road sweaters, pants and socks.

“The process of making these changes began several years ago,” said Rutherford. “We are pleased with the results, and proud that our team was able to design the new look internally. Doug Warf’s staff including Ben Aycock, Andrew Roman and Lauren Baxter devoted a lot of time and energy to this process, taking input from our hockey department to create uniforms that our players love, and our fans will hopefully enjoy as well.”

Several hundred uniform renderings were created and refined during a two-year period to create two distinct uniform sets designed to be classic and timeless. The major changes are outlined below.

To both sweaters:

  • There is a smaller, lighter crest on both sweaters. The logo outline was changed from metallic to matte silver finish.

  • The warning flag pattern was moved from the base of the sweater to inside the neckline.

  • Lettering and numbering changed to a clean, round, sans-serif-based font.

  • The shoulder patches were removed from both sweaters.

To the red sweater:

  • A cleaner look was established, highlighting the team’s dominant color. All striping is white, with black being used in the neckline and to outline letters and numbers.

  • Bold white stripes highlight the arms and base for a classic look.

  • White lacing is used on the black collar.

To the white sweater:

  • A red shoulder yoke was established, which extends on the back to include the nameplate. The feature is unique in the NHL.

  • Numbers and letters were changed from red with a black outline to black with a silver outline.

  • Bold striping to establish a classic look.

To the pants and gloves:

  • The Hurricanes logo and bottom black band were removed from the pants.

  • All glove sets are predominantly red with small white highlights. Black and silver has been removed.

The new sweaters are expected to be available for fans beginning in early September, and Hurricanes season ticket holders will be able to purchase the sweaters before they go on sale to the general public.

Very disappointing... The road look good, but the Home is too BLAND.. They should bring back the warning flags... Now the jersey look too much like Team Canada.. From now on they are "Team Caneda."

The strings do not make sense on the newer teams (Canes, Lightning, and Sharks), while they are trying to go back to their so-call traditional route...

I had a feeling they would screw them up. Looks like they're trying to be like the Wings with that home jersey. And the road jersey is boring as well, though better than the home.

The unis they had worked just fine for their logo. Now it looks really out of place.
