We knew they were on the way, what with the owner’s stated disdain for the previous jerseys, and on Tuesday the Carolina Hurricanes unveiled their new-look white sweaters for the 2019-20 NHL season.
If you haven’t seen the hype video, here it is:

A few notes on the new threads:
- The warning flags have returned to the white jerseys for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
- Diagonally across the front is the “CANES” wordmark, with the now-familiar hurricane warning flags in the C. It calls to mind the Rangers’ longtime uniforms, as well as the ill-fated “BOLTS” alternates that the Lightning tried for a few years.
- The third jersey logo is present on the shoulders of the new uniform, and the traditional Hurricanes logo is on the helmet, in a unique embossed representation.
- One of the things that defined previous ownership was that the old white uniforms featured red nameplates, so that the team could save a couple bucks in not duplicating the nameplates. That, mercifully, is no longer the case. Both the nameplates and the numbers are red outlined with black, and the font is the same as is present on the other two sweaters.
- Good question here by Brett, and I think he’s right that this is unique at the moment in the NHL:
Question (idk the answer to this): Are the Hurricanes the only team in the league to have three regularly-used jerseys (home, away, alternate) and have a different primary logo on each?— Brett Finger (@brett_finger) August 20, 2019
- And here’s a look at the full ensemble of uniforms:
