RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have decided that black is the new black.

The NHL team unveiled a new third jersey on Wednesday that features the team's secondary storm warning logo attached to a hockey stick and laid over a triangle, a tribute to the team's home in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina.

Each piece of the new uniform is primarily black, including the helmets, gloves, socks and jersey.

"We're very proud of our traditional uniforms," GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "But after 10 seasons in North Carolina and a lot of different ideas from our fans, we felt it was time to introduce an additional look for our team."

Eric Staal, Cam Ward and Tim Gleason helped with the unveiling by skating onto the ice at RBC Center in their new uniforms for the first time.

Carolina plans to wear the uniforms for 15 home games this season.
