RALEIGH, NC—The Carolina Hurricanes today unveiled their new uniforms for the 2007-08 season, and introduced plans to celebrate the team’s 10th anniversary season in North Carolina with promotions and contests throughout the year, including a home giveaway.
All 30 National Hockey League teams will be wearing new jerseys this season as part of the league-wide conversion to the Rbk EDGE Uniform System. Changes to the general design of the Hurricanes uniform include a single line of white piping around the chest, shoulders and back on the red home sweater, and red piping in the same place on the white road sweaters. In addition, each Hurricane will wear a commemorative patch on his chest this season with the 10th Anniversary logo. The new sweaters will go on sale to the general public on Sunday, Sept. 16, as part of the 8th Annual Caniac Carnival prior to the Hurricanes preseason opener.
Among the special events and giveaways planned for the Hurricanes’ 10th anniversary season is the “Canes 10th Anniversary Season Home and Prize Giveaway,” presented by St. Lawrence Homes. The contest is a season-long promotion which will have, as its grand prize, a new home, valued at more than $340,000, by St. Lawrence Homes. The 3,137-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom home will be constructed over the course of the season, and is located in Northampton, a Wake Forest subdivision, on a cul-de-sac. In addition to the house, more than 140 prizes will be given out during the promotion, which kicks off on Oct. 3. More information about the contest will be available at CarolinaHurricanes.com as the season approaches.
“We are thrilled to partner with the Hurricanes and be a part of this one-of-a-kind fan promotion in celebration of the team’s 10th season in North Carolina,” said Bob Ohmann, President and Founder of St. Lawrence Homes.
The Rbk Edge Uniform System is a technologically-advanced uniform system designed to meet the demands of today’s NHL players, finalized after more than two years of research and testing. The system features materials and fabrics that are more breathable, are more resistant to water absorption and offer greater range of movement.
