The Carolina Hurricanes have had quite a few changes to their jerseys this decade. Here are my picks for the Top 3 jerseys the franchise has used this decade.
This decade has seen the Carolina Hurricanes go from a relatively decent playoff team, to a basement rebuilding team, to what they are now: a very solid playoff contender, and one of the deepest teams in the NHL.
Along with personnel changes, roster changes, and the addition and subtraction of skill and leadership, the Carolina Hurricanes have made multiple aesthetic changes throughout the past ten years as well.
From the horrific ‘candy cane’ sweaters to the sleak, stealthy new black alternates, the Canes have a veritable smorgasbord of jerseys to choose from; a huge overhaul from years past, in which they didn’t even have an alternate jersey design until the 2008-09 season.
Before we hop into this, I’m going to give you guys the good ol’ disclaimer I normally give when I rank things based on my own personal opinion: I am ranking these things based on my own personal opinion. This article is 100% subjective. Everyone has their favorite, and everyone has that one jersey style they hate.
For transparency’s sake, the one and only jersey the Carolina Hurricanes have had that I have absolutely disdained was the aforementioned ‘candy cane’ jersey that they replaced with their current home jerseys. You will not be seeing that jersey on this list. Sorry, my dudes. With that out of the way, let’s get into it.
