Carolina Hurricanes unveil new third jersey for 2018-19 NHL season

Take warning: The Carolina Hurricanes unveiled their third jersey for the 2018-19 season.

The black jersey is influenced by a third jersey worn by the team from 2008-2017, but adds a few new features including a two-flag hurricane warning logo with an outline of the state of North Carolina between them.

More, from the team:

“The storm-gray shoulders of the uniform feature the Hurricanes’ primary logo on the right side and the state flag of North Carolina on the left side, both in tonal gray. The arms, base and socks of the uniform feature heathered red stripes, while the inner neckline of the jersey features a hidden tonal warning flag pattern. The numbers and lettering are white and utilize the same font as the Hurricanes’ current home and road uniforms.”

“We’re excited to introduce our new third jersey for the upcoming season,” Hurricanes president and GM Don Waddell said in a release. “We wanted to modernize our old alternate uniform while incorporating a sense of regional pride, and we feel we’ve done that with this design.”

The Hurricanes open the season on Oct. 4 with a home game against the New York Islanders.
