On Tuesday morning, the Carolina Hurricanes revealed their new road jerseys for the upcoming season.
According to NHL.com, this is the third season in a row that the Carolina Hurricanes will be unveiling a new jersey. In 2017, the Hurricanes upgraded their home uniforms during the NHL’s change from Reebok to Adidas and in 2018, they brought their new black third jersey into the spotlight. Shall we dive into the details of these new threads?
The announcement kicked off with an entertaining video posted on Twitter from the Canes. The flashing lights, the zooming in on different elements of the jersey, the intense skating, the bumpin’ music! What a whirlwind!

Okay, so now down to what they look like when they’re not being fiercely modeled. Some cool new features of this away jersey start at the front. The word “Canes” is displayed diagonally across the center of the chest.
Warning flags were placed on the waistline of the jersey and inside the collar to stay consistent with the recently redesigned home uniform and third jersey. The nameplate and the number fonts are red with black trim and the collar of the sweater is white with red trim. Here are some close ups of some of the new design.
Okay, to be honest? My favorite part of the whole dang thing is the 3-D raised decal of the Canes’ logo on the helmet. I find it oddly satisfying to look at and I just want to run my fingers over it? Or maybe I’m just a huge weirdo. I will also accept that narrative.
I think they look fine. I don’t have much of a sense of jersey style (or style in general to be honest), so I’m pretty indifferent on these. I did enjoy watching hockey Twitter explode with a boatload of takes, including the Rangers twitter that thought they looked pretty interesting.
