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.
