A sneak peak at next year’s jerseys

28Jan07

The results are in and people around the NHL are pretty satisfied with the new “uniform system” that had its debut at the All-Star Game. Every team will have a few tweaks to their jerseys next season and through my super-secret insider contacts, I’ve managed to get a few sneak peaks at the new look of certain teams.

First up is the Carolina Hurricanes. The reigning Cup champs regularly skate in to The Scorpions’ Rock You Like A Hurricane. Well, their jersey designers must be inspired by awesome 80’s rock because here’s Cam Ward doing a kick save in their new jersey.

Good call on the leopard print sweaters to go with the new tassled socks.

Next we have Joe Sakic modeling the new Colorado Avalanche jersey:


Apparently, the Avs will have some new communication system where they hit the logo on their chest to whine directly to the NHL offices in Toronto. Also, it’s good to see that they’re maintaining how Starfleet designates their captains.

The Anaheim Ducks had a new color scheme and a simpler logo this season. However, they want to take things back to basics even further. Imagine the flexibility they’ll have in this new uniform design — no more pants to inhibit skating abilities! Here’s Chris Pronger showing off the design. Check out the new minimalist logo they’ll be sporting next season.


Finally, we’ve got Sidney Crosby modeling the new Penguins jersey. Note the sleek, armored design — obviously someone in their front office is as stoked as I am about the new Robotech sequel coming out in a few weeks.
No word yet as to whether or not the new jerseys will have multiple transformable configurations, but apparently it will have built in jets to allow the young Penguins to skate even faster.

    I certainly hope you’re planning on working your way through the rest of the teams, alphabetically or not 😛

    That might be REALLY difficult to come up with 26 more pop culture references with applicable team colors and/or initials…but I’ll see what I can do! 😉

    I just hope I don’t scare anyone off with my nerdy sci-fi stuff.

    The Roy Fokker’s veritech color scheme matches the Penguins? BRILLIANT!

    +100 points for giving me a Robotech update in a hockey blog.
