Don’t Expect To See A Third Jersey… During The Game

Adidas is taking over as the official supplier of the NHL in 2017-18, Vegas’ first season. Most NHL teams currently have three jerseys, a home jersey which is usually the primary color of the team, an away jersey which is always white, and an alternate. However, with Reebok out and Adidas in, that may change, at least for now.

Multiple sources tell the Star Tribune that all NHL teams will be permitted to have only home and road jerseys next season as Adidas takes over for Reebok as the official outfitter of NHL uniforms. –Michael Russo, Star Tribune

As we await the reveal of the Vegas Golden Knights jerseys, we’ve posted our own mock ups, we’ve seen some cool ones on other sites, and we’ve gotten a few little hints from The Creator himself. Today, we received this note via email.

Just plan on the two primary jerseys with some pre game special jerseys that can be used as charity tie in’s during the year. -The Creator

So, no third jerseys and no more logos in addition to the V-Helmet, the Sword Star, and the Vegas Golden Knights word mark for now.

The expectation is still for Vegas to unveil their first sweaters in late-June, but rumors have surfaced that it could be pushed up as soon as March. June 21st makes the most sense as that’s the date the team announces the results of the Expansion Draft, but June 23rd could work as well, especially if the Golden Knights win the lottery and select first at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

Either way, just two, not three jerseys in 2017-18. Saved ya 180 bucks.

    Bummer was hoping for Home and Away jerseys with the Knight Helmet and then an Alternate with the Sword Star. I don’t understand pre game special jerseys. Is that a jersey fans can purchase but won’t be worn in game? That could be cool. I wouldn’t mind a fake throw back (cartoonish knight with a visor would be awesome) and something along the lines of the Red Sword Star jersey you guys came up with. Maybe a jersey with just the word (Las) Vegas. Hoping they avoid cramming Golden Knights on the front. St Patrick Day jersey could be cool too if they actually get creative with a different logo and not simply make the jersey green.

    How quick from the announcement to them actually selling? If it’s immediately I’m ok with the June reveal if it takes months then I rather have it come on March. I want to be able to buy in June and then go somewhere rocking my jersey and watch the entry draft. Doesn’t sound like they’re going to do anything special for the expansion draft although I wish they would have at least an hour special where they slowly revealed the players and broke them down on tv. Regardless get the jerseys out in June so we can wear them all summer long.

    ‘I don’t understand pre game special jerseys. Is that a jersey fans can purchase but won’t be worn in game?’

    The players wear the pre game special jerseys during warm ups and the team auctions off the game worn signed jerseys for charity. For example, purple jerseys for Hockey Fights Cancer and camo jerseys for Military Appreciation Night. You can also buy non game worn/signed pre game special jerseys.

    ‘St Patrick Day jersey could be cool too if they actually get creative with a different logo and not simply make the jersey green.’

    I’ve seen teams wearing green jerseys during warm up to celebrate St Patrick Day.

      Thanks that answered my question. I wonder if they’ll be putting out any jerseys that are one offs like the NBA Christmas, throwbacks, Latin heritage, or the Lakers Hollywood nights jersey that are worn from a game or two and fans are able to purchase them retail.

    To be honest, I’m surprised. I thought releasing more jerseys was a money-spinner. Heck, soccer teams release a new shirt every season. From what I gather, there are going to be three outdoor games next season. I would be surprised if additional jerseys aren’t released for those games.

    The New York Islanders released a black and white Brooklyn Nets inspired jersey after moving to the Barclays Center from Long Island.
