Last summer’s addition of Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin gave the Carolina Hurricanes a new look on the ice. This fall, the whole team will have an updated look.
The Canes announced that they will have new home and road uniforms for the 2013-14 season, the first major overhaul of the team's look since they moved to North Carolina 15 years ago. The primary "eye" logo and colors will remain the same, but everything else is on the table. The team's third jerseys — black with the storm warning flag secondary logo as the main crest — will remain the same and could still be used next season, according to senior director of communications Mike Sundheim.The new look will be unveiled June 4 at a noon press conference at PNC Arena.
Icethetics, a website that reports news on hockey uniforms and logos, has mentioned previously that the team and Reebok have been at work on a new uniform. The Hurricanes indicated that they will tease the release of the new uniform on their Instagram account each day at 10 a.m. Here is the release from the team.
HURRICANES TO UNVEIL NEW UNIFORMS ON JUNE 4
Media are invited to attend launch event and news conference at PNC Arena
RALEIGH, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes will unveil all-new home and road uniforms at a launch event and news conference at PNC Arena at noon on Tuesday, June 4. Media are invited to cover the event which will take place on the arena floor. Invitees will include Hurricanes staff, randomly selected season-ticket holders, suite-lease owners, social-media contest winners and corporate partners. Lunch will be served for media and attendees following the launch event, and will include PNC Arena’s famous North Carolina barbecue.
While the team’s primary logo and colors will remain intact, the Hurricanes’ new uniforms will alter the look of the team’s home and road jerseys, pants and socks, for the first time in the team’s 15-year North Carolina history. Beginning tomorrow, May 24, "teaser" swatch images of the new jerseys will be posted each day to the team’s social media outlets, including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Various contests allowing select winners to attend the June 4 launch event will run congruently to the posting of teaser images on social media.
