| Jersey Specifications
RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today unveiled the team’s new alternate uniforms. The Hurricanes will wear the mostly-black uniforms for 15 home games this season, and the new Hurricanes third jerseys go on sale to the general public at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21, at the team’s annual season kick-off event, the Caniac Carnival.
“We’re very proud of our traditional uniforms,” said Rutherford. “But after ten seasons in North Carolina and a lot of different ideas from our fans, we felt it was time to introduce an additional look for our team.”
The “premier” version of the jersey will be available for $115 and the “authentic” version costs $299. The “youth” version is priced at $80. Prices do not include tax. The first 200 fans to purchase the new sweater at the Caniac Carnival will get access to a special “express lane” during the Carnival’s autograph session.

modeled the uniform at today’s news conference, skating out onto their home ice in their new uniforms for the first time. Each piece of the uniform is primarily black, including the players’ helmets, gloves, socks and jersey. The featured logo on the center of the jersey is the team’s familiar secondary logo, which includes a storm warning flag attached to a hockey stick and laid over a triangle, a tribute to the team’s home in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. The jersey also includes gray squares along the bottom of the jersey, where the red-and-black squares are on the team’s primary sweaters and a gray and black version of the team’s primary logo on each shoulder. The player’s number is in red outlined in white on the sleeves and back, and the players name is in white on the back of the sweater. The socks and sleeves of the jersey feature red and gray v-shaped stripes and the black pants include the team’s primary logo.
