Carolina Hurricanes bring back green jerseys, mascot Pucky the Whale, and goal song ‘Brass Bonaza’ for Whalers Night
The Harford Whalers was one of the most beloved teams in NHL history. Sunday, the Carolina Hurricanes paid homage to its franchise’s former iteration by celebrating Whalers Night at PNC Arena.
The Hurricanes pulled out all the stops to elicit as much Whalers nostalgia as possible. The Hurricanes photoshopped their current players into vintage hockey cards. PNC Arena was adorned with green Whalers signs. The organization brought back mascot Pucky the Whale. The team changed their goal song to Brass Bonanza. Carolina even wore the Whalers’ old green and blue jerseys.
Prior to this night, the color scheme was not used since April 13, 1997. The whole scene was a sight to behold.
