This afternoon, the Carolina Hurricanes officially unveiled their brand new Rbk EDGE uniforms! Photos follow!
It's pretty much what we saw in the NHL 08 renderings from EA Sports — only in physical form. I like them. Not sure about the shoulder piping. Seems unncessary, but what do I know. I do like the hurricane flags around the bottom of the jersey. Glad they kept that element from the old uniforms. Check out the back!
Also unveiled today was the club's 10th anniversary patch.
It's a very nice logo. One nitpick I have though is the flag between the 1997 and 2007 at the bottom. That's a tropical storm flag. A hurricane flag is two of those side-by-side. But that's only minor. You'll notice the banner that reads "10th Anniversary" has the flag on both ends.
The 'Canes also kept their secondary shoulder logo which features a torn hurricane flag ripping in the wind.
And here you can see Cam Ward, Justin Williams, Ray Whitney and Erik Cole modeling the new sweaters before the press today at the RBC Center.
As always, you can find these and as many more photos of the new jerseys as I can find in my official Rbk EDGE gallery.
