From the Carolina Hurricanes:
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 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.”
