The wait is almost over! A source informed Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter Michael Russo that the much-anticipated new Adidas jerseys would be unveiled at the NHL Draft in June. Russo went on to state that the Minnesota Wild uniforms will be green again, similar to their outdoor jerseys worn at the 2016 Stadium Series. He also indicated that each team’s home and away jerseys would be revealed over the draft weekend. What else do we know?
The only guarantee is that the Vegas Golden Knights will be revealing their much-anticipated first jersey set in franchise history. Oh, the joys of expansion teams! Icethetics has reported that the Anaheim Ducks will be going to orange jerseys in 2018-19, a year after the unveiling. The
The Edmonton Oilers will also be going to orange and started an Orange Crush campaign as part of their rebranding. They’ll be using their current orange uniform as their new home jersey starting next season. Outside of that, we could be expecting a logo change for the Ottawa Senators.
There will be two different branded jerseys for fans to buy. The authentic uniforms will be branded as Adidas, complete with a fighting strap and will retail for approximately $360. The replica jerseys will be branded as Fanatics and retail for about $170. The pricing of the jerseys was also mentioned by Greg Wyshynski (Puck Daddy, Yahoo Sports). When I spoke to a source earlier this month, the source said that the Adidas official uniforms would be heavily protected by the company’s counterfeit program.
