NHL Jerseys

  The Winnipeg Jets have always been a bit of an odd bunch in the aesthetics department. Their World Hockey Association days saw them change their uniforms nearly every single year. Once they reached the National Hockey League, they wore a stolen jersey template for an entire decade. The return of the Jets to Winnipeg

Since the Winnipeg Jets returned to the National Hockey League in 2011-12, their jerseys have remained exactly the same. Certainly, uniform continuity is welcome in some instances; who among us hasn’t scrimped and saved for the sweater of our favourite team, only to see them change the design six months later? However, though I respect

The Florida Panthers are on the rise. Since ending the 2017-18 National Hockey League season on a 25-8-2 run, the Panthers have added some quality depth up front, their defense has another year of experience and an intriguing addition, and they’ve bolstered their goaltending battery. Now that the Panthers are finally, finally a force to be

The Boston Bruins have had a weird few years. Come to think of it, they’ve had a pretty strange history. Every time they have a run of success and seemed poised to become a bona fide dynasty, circumstances conspire to ensure that dream falls just a little bit short. You Win Some, You Lose Some…More

A couple of teams unveiled brand new alternate jerseys at the 2018 NHL Draft this past weekend, but the Winnipeg Jets were not among them. Prior to the 2017-18 season, Adidas took over from Reebok as the NHL’s jersey provider and dedicated its focus on redesigning all 31 teams’ home and away sweaters. That meant there were no

  The Anaheim Ducks have, by and large, been blessed when it comes to National Hockey League expansion teams. Stars like Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne graced their roster – then composed of Mighty Ducks – early on in their existence. They made two Stanley Cup finals in four seasons, taking the New Jersey Devils

It’s been quite the debut for the Vegas Golden Knights. After finally revealing the roster of the National Hockey League’s newest expansion team following much wheeling and dealing, much of the hockey world was comforted by their seemingly curious roster composition. After all, there had already been many such facepalm-worthy moments in the Vegas franchise’s short

Ahh, the Arizona Coyotes. Hockey’s favourite punching bag. Long plagued by arena troubles, attendance troubles, financial troubles, ownership troubles and pretty much every other sort of trouble you can imagine, the National Hockey League has, nevertheless, stood by its desert outpost. While this might seem like an inexplicable course of action for the notoriously conservative

Let’s face it, we’re all a little tired of the Chicago Blackhawks. Given how often they’re on national television, how many of them were named to the National Hockey League’s Top 100 (despite questionable qualifications) and, of course, the league’s insistence on sending them to every single outdoor game ever, the NHL seems to view

The Tampa Bay Lightning are the envy of the National Hockey League. They’ve got a phenomenal owner in Jeff Vinik, who put the brakes on disaster and painstakingly rebuilt the organisation from the inside out. A former investment wizard, Vinik has managed to strike the optimal balance between the fanatical micromanagement of some of his

Have you ever wondered why referees wear striped shirts, or teams have to wear contrasting colours? Then  this is for you. Contrasting Colours in NHL Uniforms Hockey uniforms were very simple in the early days. Since most players also played football in the summertime, they simply borrowed these pants for hockey games, then added a

The Florida Panthers are, and pretty much always have been, one of the most colourful teams in the National Hockey League. On the figurative side of things, whether it’s arena shenanigans, overbearing ownership, or general manager Dale Tallon’s twisted revenge plot, the Panthers are never, ever boring. And on the literal side of things, the Cats

  The Arizona Coyotes, at the time long overdue for a uniform change, rolled out their current uniforms in time for the 2015-16 National Hockey League season. However, the new rendition leaves much to be desired. An Unbalanced Mess At first glance, the addition of black seems to be a welcome one, given the relative

Like a fine wine most NHL jerseys get better with age. Whether they were loved or despised, most sports jerseys end up finding a soft place in our heart as we yearn for the past and get lost in nostalgia. Currently, in pop culture as well as sports, trends of 90’s are coming back in

The team uniform represents more than what some fans may think. Jerseys are often historic symbols that represent the cities that they belong to, and some are even deeply rooted in the lengthy, rich history of the NHL. This list will examine the top-10 nicest current NHL jerseys, and will include only home and away jerseys (so no

Choosing a jersey number sometimes has a philosophy of its own. Each NHL player has his own number logic and usually keeps this number for the rest of his career if possible. How are the numbers chosen and do they have a specific meaning? Well in some cases they are just numbers which are still

Ah yes, the Calgary Flames. My hometown team. My boys! How could I ever be upset with them? Except, you know, when they win only four playoff rounds since 1989, missing the playoffs altogether 14 times. And also their penchant for grossly misjudging and or mistreating organisational talent (Doug Gilmour, Al MacInnis, Michael Nylander, Jean-Sebastien

Despite only being around for 24 years, the Anaheim Ducks sure do like taking walks down memory lane. After he previously spent parts of six seasons with the team, the then-Mighty Ducks brought back Teemu Selanne for the 2005-06 season (and the eight that followed), four years after shipping him to the San Jose Sharks
