Carolina Hurricanes Unveil Alternate Home Jersey

Dan London@danlondonCorrespondent ISeptember 18, 2008

The Carolina Hurricanes released their “third jersey” last week. The main logo on this jersey is now the alternate logo that is usually on the shoulder.

Instead of reworking the red version of their regular jersey, the design is mainly black with a number of black and white elements.

The standard Hurricanes logo is now on the shoulder and is black and white instead of red, white, and black.

The socks use the same “angled” stripe approach that the Lightning and the Senators do. I am not a fan of that style sock at all.

The uniforms also include a switch to black gear.

They will all wear black helmets, gloves and pants to match the uniforms instead of the usual red.

This means that each player is going to have to break in multiple sets of equipment. I am sure the equipment guys are hoping they do not wear these things on the road, as carrying two sets of gear would be a huge annoyance.

The Hurricanes are allowed to wear the uniforms 15 times at home this season.
