Hurricanes' New Sweaters Coming Early

A couple of people emailed me a link to this post at the The News & Observer regarding 'Canes jersey news.

According to writer Luke DeCock, the Carolina Hurricanes will unveil their new Rbk EDGE uniforms tomorrow afternoon at the RBC Center in Raleigh. Now, before you start commenting with links to pictures from EA Sports' NHL 08, I know all about them but I don't consider video game renderings to be actual images of the new uniforms. For that, we need good old-fashioned photographs.

And apparently we're getting them on Thursday.

New uniforms unveiled Thursday

The Hurricanes will unveil their new Rbk uniforms at a press conference Thursday afternoon at the RBC Center. Eric Staal, Justin Williams, Erik Cole and Ray Whitney are scheduled to attend.

One new, new addition: a patch commemorating the franchise's 10th season in North Carolina.

Fans can get their first look at the new uniforms on Sept. 16 at the Caniac Carnival. The Canes will wear them in the preseason game against the Capitals that afternoon.

As you know, I'd previously reported the unveiling date as September 16. It's been corrected in the sidebar countdown.

Thanks to all of you who emailed in with this info!

I'll have photos posted as soon as I can. Just remember, I usually don't get home from work until after 12 PM (Eastern) and I can't post anything until then. 'Canes fans, your big day is tomorrow! Get excited!

im still convinced what EA Sports has shown will be the actual sweaters. there hasn't been any other leaks than them, so they must be the real deal. wish they added another flag to their logo though, then it would represent a hurricane warning.

I'm with Chris on this one. Right before the Thrashers first season, EA Sprts hockey 2000 had a "COMPLETELY" wrong away jersey for the Thrashers. Wrong colors, Wrong colors, Hell even soe wrong players. So We shall see from the Hurricanes what we shall see.

You said it. It's unfortunate that it seems that's what comes with popularity. As the site grew, so did the number of ridiculous comments. I'm glad there are those of who actually appreciate this blog for what it is — and know how to be civil about it. You're why I continue to write. Thanks!
