The Carolina Hurricanes unveiled their rebranding effort at PNC Arena on Tuesday, where the Hurricanes presented their first jersey alteration since the franchise's relocation to Carolina in 1997.

While the logo and color scheme remained the same, the team's new jersey kit features a more classic, streamlined approach, which was teased through the team's instagram account over the past week. The home sweater still features red as the primary color but feature white laces on the front. In addition, the sleeves are adorned with white stripes, as are the waist.

The road sweater remains white sans the laces. The team's font has also been altered to sans-serif, with the white sweaters featuring black lettering and numbering instead of red. In addition, the white sweaters feature a red shoulder yolk.

The shoulder patches have been removed from the sweater.

It should also be noted that the team's black third jersey will remain in rotation next season.
