5 Best and Worst of the NHL's New Adidas Jerseys
In case you missed it, the NHL unveiled all 31 of its new Adidas uniforms. Now, my knowledge of hockey ends at Emilio Estevez being the greatest hockey coach of all time, so obviously, I'm not the most informed when it comes to hockey uniforms. With that being said, I am going to judge these 31 uniforms on the basis of design, spirit and overall messaging.
Keep reading for the five best and five worst NHL Adidas uniforms. And, go Mighty Ducks!
1. The Minnesota Wild
This is a great use of a logo, and I love how seamlessly the trees in the coyote (Wolf? Tiger?) head integrate into the overall jersey.
2. New York Rangers
This is a nice, clean jersey with a simple design that works very well.
3. Tampa Bay Lightning
I really like the patch detailing on the right shoulder.
4. Vegas Golden Knights
For a brand new jersey, these gold and charcoal uniforms are pretty great, and I definitely love the color scheme.
5. Arizona Coyotes
I like the sleeve color-blocking details on this jersey.
1. Buffalo Sabres
I know there's not much that can be done with an established logo, but this doesn't even look like a buffalo to me.
2. Colorado Avalanche
This looks more like a volleyball in motion than an avalanche, but then again, I haven't seen that many avalanches in my lifetime.
3. Edmonton Oilers
I don't really like the reflective detailing in the text logo, plus, the overall logo looks like a baby bib.
4. Nashville Predators
This predator has way too big of an overbite to be a threat to anyone.
5. New York Islanders
There's just a lot going on with this jersey, and I wish the Islanders text was more prevalent.
