According to the team, the changes include: Hurricanes unveil new uniforms Slideshow: Hurricanes unveil new uniforms

A smaller, lighter crest on both home and away sweaters. The logo outline was changed from metallic to matte silver finish.

• The warning flag pattern was moved from the base of the sweater to inside the neckline.
• Lettering and numbering changed to a more round, sans-serif font.
• The shoulder patches were removed from both sweaters.

The Hurricanes logo and bottom black band were removed from the pants, and glove sets will be predominantly red with small white highlights. Black and silver has been removed.

The change is the first to the Canes uniforms since their relocation to North Carolina in 1997. The team's primary colors and logos remain the same on the new uniforms.

The new sweaters will be available for purchase in early September. Hurricanes' season ticket holders will have an opportunity to purchase before the general public.

    I like them especially the road white uniforms.. soooooo much better than the older version. I like the lace up sweater at home.. kinda looks like Red Wings though with the red/white look. Also the black alternates stay the same!

    WOW! This makes me want to buy season tickets.

    At first glance, I do not particularly like them. They look too retro and resemble other teams uniforms. The Red Wings's uniform comes to mind. Maybe it will grow on me.

    A lot better and more simple than previous years.

    Those are just plain ugly.

    Meh.. Doesn't do much for me. Minus the retro look and laces, they're just about the same as they were. Of the two, the white definitely looks better. Red ones make me think Red Wings/Canada/Russia...

    Really, what should have been done was a new logo and start from the ground up.

    Don't care for them at all.

    You're incorrect about not changing the jerseys, they added the white piping around the shoulders post Stanley cup. The jerseys were awesome the way they were. Just wasted a lot of money and time on these unoriginal ones.

    Where will they wear the home uniforms since NCSU has tied up all of the dates at PNC Arena

    The away whites look somewhat like the Canadians and the home reds look like the Red Wings. Couldn't we be a little more original than this?!
