White Out Night, October 12th, 2019 vs Columbus Blue Jackets
For the third straight year, the Carolina Hurricanes are putting a new jersey on the ice. Since the 16-17 NHL season the team has adorned EIGHT different uniforms. That is the most by any team not playing in any outdoor games in that time span.
Now, granted, the switch to Adidas from Reebok has dictated that the team leave behind their three old uniforms and adopt the new home and away Jerseys for the 17-18 Season. And naturally that meant a new third jersey. The Whalers throwbacks mentioned earlier was also a welcomed addition to the collection.
But on October 12th, the second night of the first back to back home games for the Carolina Hurricanes, the team will don their brand new away jerseys at home. This will mark the first time that the team will do so in their history. This also means that the Canes will wear different uniforms on a back to back and one of them not be their home reds.
The new uniform features their nickname “Canes” diagonally across the jersey. While many fans are torn on if it is a good look, you have to admit it is unique. The blacked out 3D logos on the helmet are also a nice touch.
This is one of the few times that the opponent isn’t much of a factor to the excitement of the game. The Columbus Blue Jackets have been down on their luck after going all in on the playoffs last year only to lose out to the Bruins in the second round after sweeping the President’s Cup winners in round one. They have a lot of rebuilding to do.
Every Fan in attendance will receive a white T-shirt that looks similar to the new jerseys. If you go this game and do not have a white Jersey, either purchase one, or plan to wear the T-shirt. The Carolina Hurricanes are looking for a full blown White Out of the arena. And it will be spectacular. Now before the Winnipeg fans come in here complaining, just know that no one cares if we stole this idea.
This game also marks the first time that an NHL team has four separate distinct logos on their uniforms, all making appearances at home. Make sure to not miss any of them in person. This is the only time this season that the Carolina Hurricanes will feature this jersey at home, it would be an absolute shame to skip out on this game.
