Cue "Brass Bonanza."
The Carolina Hurricanes will honor their heritage in hosting Whalers Night on Sunday, Dec. 23 when the Boston Bruins, an old Hartford rival, visit PNC Arena.
"We're proud of the history and traditions that we've built in 21 years in North Carolina. But we've never thrown away the records established during this franchise's 18 NHL seasons in Connecticut," said Hurricanes President and General Manager Don Waddell. "This is a chance to celebrate our team's heritage and the players and coaches who laid the groundwork for this franchise."
Whalers Night will encompass a number of throwback elements, the highlight of which will be the vintage sweaters, sculpted after the threads worn by the Whalers from 1985-89 and 1990-91. The green sweaters feature white and blue striping along the waist, with angled white and blue striping on the arms. The centerpiece is, of course, the iconic Whalers logo.
The Hurricanes will also wear the Whalers kit when they visit Boston on Tuesday, March 5.
