In a press conference today, the Carolina Hurricanes unveiled their new uniforms for the 2013-14 season.
The home uniform is all red, except for two white stripes at the bottom of the jersey and on the sleeves. The pants are completely red and the socks also feature two white stripes.
The home jerseys have a similar feel to the Phoenix Coyotes‘ home jersey.
The white uniforms are similar to the ones that Team Canada wears at international tournaments. There is a red strip at the shoulders that extenders down the back to the players’ name. At the bottom of the jersey is another red stripe in between two black stripes that matches the look of the home jerseys.
The pants are also red and the same color coordination is done on the socks. Eric Staals’ ‘C’ is smaller on both jerseys than the old jerseys.
Gone are the stripes at the bottom of the jersey with the squares inside and the three-color stripes on the sleeves of the previous jerseys. The numbers on the sleeves were also pushed higher and are more prominent.
Overall the jerseys have a cleaner look and highlight the red that is associated with the Hurricanes.
The jerseys were unveiled at PNC Arena in front of 150 fans. Eric Staal and Jim Rutherford were there to help in the unveiling and Doug Warf answered questions from the crowd on the jerseys.
