On Tuesday night in Las Vegas, the NHL unveiled the new home jerseys for all 31 teams for the upcoming 2017-18 season. Adidas is the new outfitter for the National Hockey League, so the rumbling of new team jerseys went rampant.
Several teams made some pretty drastic changes. For example, the Edmonton Oilers go orange as their main colour, not blue. The Colorado Avalanche go back to their original look from 1996, and we get a first look at the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. Other teams made no change to their shirts at all.
One team which made some noticeable changes on their jersey is the Ottawa Senators. The centurion logo stays on the shirt and is the primary logo in the middle of the chest. The Heritage ‘O’ makes its way onto the new jersey, with a logo on each shoulder. The home red looks sharper on the new jersey. The players name and number fonts are also a BIG change, with both of them going more of the traditional block style. The NHL logo on the neck will have a metallic look, which all the teams’ jersey will have.
For Toronto and Montreal fans, the changes are not as drastic. The jerseys remain with their traditional looks. The most noticeable change is the inner neckline, featuring the both team’s respective motos.
The new jerseys for all 31 teams is posted below.
