Dougie Hamilton will soon be sporting new threads.
The NHL and Adidas unveiled the Adizero Authentic Pro uniforms for the 2020 NHL All-Star Game, a collection that incorporates local St. Louis flavor in addition to design elements from all 31 teams.
The focal point of the sweater is, of course, the crest, and each All-Star will wear his team's primary logo. The jerseys feature a one-color version of the respective team's logo as the crest, with the Carolina Hurricanes' primary logo sporting a red colorway.
"It's a little different when you're not used to seeing a single color on the Hurricanes' logo," Hamilton said. "I think it will look pretty sharp and stand out a lot."
Striping along the sleeves and chest mimics a musical staff, a nod to the rich blues history found in St. Louis. The set of five stripes is stitched with a silver, metallic-like thread, similar to the silver stripe found on the Canes' uniform set from 1997-2013.
The 2020 NHL All-Star patch sits on the right sleeve of each jersey. Hidden in the inner neckline, you'll find St. Louis' iconic Gateway Arch and a trumpet.
The designated home team in each game will wear dark, charcoal sweaters, while the away team will sport white sweaters.
"I'm happy wearing anything, but I think it's pretty cool," Hamilton said. "It's something different."
Hamilton will don at least one of these new sweaters during the 2020 NHL All-Star Game, which will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. ET. The defenseman will be outfitted in his usual Canes' garb during the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills on Friday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.
