Adidas is set to take over as the NHL's official outfitter starting next season (from Reebok) and they're bringing some new changes with them.
Some early glimpses (including the brand's production of World Cup of Hockey uniforms last fall) indicate that the spotswear company will be bringing signficantly more perforation and, hopefully, a simpler construction process.
All 62 jerseys (31 NHL teams with a home and away uniform, no alternates) will be unveiled June 20 in Las Vegas.
But on Thursday, teaser images were sent out to hype up the full reveal ahead of next week's NHL Awards.
Some gave a glimpse into the changes. Others simply provided a look at the adidas logo on the same old uniform.
Here's a rundown of those teasers (some of which have still yet to be released) as well as any takeaways they provide.
Still not going back to the eggplant and teal. Idiots.
All seems familiar.
Looks like they've made a slight tweak to the lettering, as they've removed the black trim on player names.
Still going with a navy blue instead of royal blue. For shame.
A disappointing confirmation that they won't be going back to the '80s look.
No noticeable difference.
It appears the Avs might be in for significant change: A silver stripe now splits the burgundy and blue, and it appears to be slightly angled in the teaser. Could Colorado be returning to the mountain range design?
Columbus Blue Jackets
Looks like CBJ may have a new player name font.
Not much different here.
Detroit Red Wings
Doesn't look like much of anything has changed. Not surprising.
Update: Several readers have pointed out that the Wings have a nameplate instead of sewn-on lettering, as is tradition. It could be that the nameplate is just for the purpose of the tease. They also do nameplates during preseason.
A first look at the darker shade of blue that will be featured on the Oilers' orange home jerseys next year.
Nothing new to take away here.
Los Angeles Kings
Looks the same.
As expected, it's a green home jersey for the Wild next season. Looks like there will also be quite a bit of cream as well, including (presumably) on the horizontal torso stripe.
Nothing seems to be different, which is a good thing.
Looks like the Predators are getting rid of the navy design going across the top of the nameplate.
New Jersey Devils
While the Devils have been rumored to be making some significant changes to their set, there's no indication of that here. They're sticking with the red and black.
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Nothing new to see here.
Sticking with the standout nameplates. Good choice. Though for some reason, it seems like the material on Philly's jersey is different from every other team.
No noticeable changes for the champs.
San Jose Sharks
There doesn't appear to be much different happening here.
St. Louis Blues
Staying the course.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Vegas Golden Knights
The first of its kind. It appears they might be going with a dark gray base for the home jersey but this tease doesn't give us any indication as to how much gold, black or red trim will be involved.
