Two days ago, we learned the Dallas Stars would be unveiling new uniforms on June 4.

Today, it’s the Carolina Hurricanes announcing they’ll be unveiling new duds…on June 4.

From the club’s website:

This marks the first significant uniform alteration – from the home and road sweaters to the pants to the socks – in the team’s 15-year North Carolina history. The team’s primary logo and colors will remain intact. Beginning Friday, May 24, teaser swatches of the new uniforms will be posted each day.

Since I don’t really have much to add about this, here are some highlights from the Hurricanes’ first ever game in 1997.

      They better make the Alternate their Primary! Such a sick looking sweater

    It certainly is for 4th tier organizations/sport cities.

      A cup final, a Stanley cup, and a conference final in the last 11 years. Yea, pretty “4th tier”.

        I like the Canes, but winning 1 Cup is something that 10 different teams have done in the last 11 years. The overall success year to year for the Hurricanes has not been that good. They’ve only made the playoffs 3 times in the last 11 years. And business-wise they’re the 26th most valuable organization in the league. So yeah that’s probably in the bottom tier.

    I hope they’re classy and traditional. No more suggestive flags, please.

    Did they need a uniform overhaul??

    nothing wrong with the unis they got now

    Its about time! they have a great concept but are just hideous. pointless gray, checkered squares around the bottom, useless white line around the shoulder pads like every team stupidly had after that 04 05 lockout…..I HATED those. The logos are great and keep the flag. It means hurricane. If that offends you then change the entire team name.

    Aren’t the Stars unveiling their new jerseys then as well? Perhaps they hope it’ll be a distraction from their lack of UFA activity the following day?

    Bring back the Whalers

  9. tycobbfromfangraphs - May 23, 2013 at 2:41 PM

    A lil less red and a lil more black I’m hoping.

  10. President Charles Logan - May 23, 2013 at 3:01 PM

    I really like the canes white jerseys , the reds are almost too much red though

  11. shortsxit34 - May 23, 2013 at 3:04 PM

    Isn’t the flag logo actually wrong? I remember hearing it is for a tropical storm; the logo should have two flags.

    Dallas and Carolina have great looking uniforms, not sure why they are changing. The Ducks on the other hand have the worst looking uniforms in professional sports right now, yet no change for them. Go figure.
