|The overall design of the home red uniform is very clean and unencumbered. The boldness of the team’s primary color dominates the feel for this sweater. White stripes highlight the arms and base, giving the sweater an even weight and classic look. A hint of black outlines the names and numbers, as well. The collar is fitted with white lace which contrasts the black neckline and further establishes the classic look.
The letters and numbering for both uniforms have been updated to a clean, sans-serif font that will remain current over the upcoming years. Shoulder patches have been removed to continue the simplicity and timelessness found throughout elements of both sweaters.
The uniforms also have a surprise in store. Using what Reebok refers to as a “hanger effect”, the warning flag pattern once adorning the base of the jerseys lives on in the neckline of the new designs.
Looking beyond the sweater, tweaks were also in order for the pants and gloves. The pants have been simplified to be solid red, with only an NHL shield on the back-right leg and the manufacturer name in white on the front-left. Coupled with the revised gloves which are red with only small white highlights, the uniforms promise to make a bold statement on the ice.
