Charlotte will debut new look beginning with 2013-14 season

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Checkers have unveiled new home and road uniforms, which are based on the new look earlier presented by their NHL affiliate, the Carolina Hurricanes.

Several key changes include the removal of the hurricane warning flag strip across the bottom of both jerseys, the new font for letters and numbers and a distinct look between the home red and road white uniforms. Like the Hurricanes, the Checkers have not changed their primary colors or logo.
