Ça passe ou ça casse?

Pour la troisième année consécutive, les Hurricanes de la Caroline débuteront la saison avec un tout nouveau chandail.

C'est ce qu'a annoncé la direction de l'équipe aujourd'hui en dévoilant leur nouveau chandail pour les matchs à l'étranger.

Même si le proprio de l'équipe, Tom Dundon, a déclaré l'an dernier ne pas être un fan dans chandails blancs, allant même jusqu'à demander aux équipes adverses de changer de chandail pour permettre à sa formation de porter leur chandail rouge même à l'étranger, le chandail dévoilé aujourd'hui est bel et bien blanc.

C'est donc dire que le proprio récalcitrant aura eu à se plier aux exigences de la LNH.

Le chandail en question en est un de style classique avec le mot "CANES" écrit en lettres à titre de logo, donnant un look très clean.

On a aussi annoncé que l'équipe serait la première de l'histoire de la LNH à porter des collants 3D du logo sur leur casque, une nouveauté très intéressante!

Ça passe ou ça casse? Voyez les images au bas.

"A new look for a new era."

"Bold. Clean. Canes."

"The team's new road uniform includes a number of eye-catching elements, the most dominant of which is the red "Canes" wordmark, introduced in 2018, arranged diagonally as the crest of the jersey; it's an element of a classic hockey sweater but it's something unique to the Canes' uniform history.

Warning flags have returned to the waistline of the white jersey with the same sublimated, tone-on-tone pattern introduced with the redesigned home uniform in 2017. Sandwiching the warning flag stripe along the waste are two, thin black stripes. This black-red-black striping pattern is repeated (minus the warning flags) on both the sleeves and socks of the new road uniform.

The shoulder of the previous road sweater featured a red yoke, which dropped down the back to also house the nameplate. The shoulder design of the new jersey boasts a cleaner, more modern aesthetic - the red yoke was removed in favor of an all-white base, and the team's secondary logo sits on both shoulders.

The nameplate and number fonts, consistent across all three uniform sets, are now red with black trim, the color palette utilized on the white jerseys prior to a 2013 redesign (black with gray trim).

The collar of the sweater is predominantly white with red trim, with the NHL shield prominently displayed at the base. The tone-on-tone warning flag pattern adorns the inside of the collar, a feature seen on the home and third jerseys, as well.

The white helmet introduces a 3-D raised decal of an alternate version of the Canes' primary logo, an incredibly unique element compared to the typical sticker application.

The pants (red) and gloves (red with black trim) remain unchanged from the previous iteration of the team's road uniform set.

The resulting product is a bold addition to the Hurricanes' uniform collection, a white road kit that is quite unlike anything the team has ever worn. Together, the team has assembled three diverse uniform sets, with each jersey featuring a different, yet unquestionably Canes crest.
