RALEIGH, NC. - Amid Commissioner Gary Bettman's press availability ahead of Wednesday's Game One of the Stanley Cup Final, the National Hockey League revealed the official logo for the 2023 Navy Federal Stadium Series.
The game, which will take place on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at Carter-Finley Stadium, will be the first-ever outdoor contest for the Carolina Hurricanes. They'll take on the Washington Capitals in the home venue of N.C. State Football, located directly across the street from PNC Arena.
The logo was designed by the NHL creative team and includes several elements encompassing both the Canes organization and the City of Raleigh.
- The banner at the bottom of the logo, housing the "Raleigh 2023" portion, was inspired by elements of the North Carolina state flag.
- The 12 stadium lights, featured in the top area surrounding the NHL logo, represents the contest being the 12th NHL Stadium Series game, to date.
- The top of the crest is modeled after the scoreboard at Carter-Finley Stadium.
- The shape of the crest itself is an acorn and the tree included within the emblem is an oak tree, representing Raleigh's nickname of "The City of Oaks".
- The usage of silver throughout is a nod to next year being the Canes 'Silver Anniversary' - their 25th season.
The Canes will wear specialty jerseys for the game that are scheduled to be revealed at a date closer to the contest.
