With Covid putting a screeching halt on revenue generated in ticket and merch sales, there’s one really good way to help every team recoup while giving the fans something they want! The Buffalo Sabres opted to “Return To Royal” in August. Then the Golden Knights introduced their gold alternate jersey on October 2nd and the Senators followed suit with their “Back To Our Roots” 2D jersey introduction on October 4th. The Flames and Coyotes then dropped their retro alternates on October 5th. It’s been quiet since, however, there’s an obvious trend here. Are we in for a season where all 31 teams unveil alternates? Is the NHL going “retro”?
As more jerseys are revealed, I’ll share them at the top of the list below.. less scrolling!
Dallas Stars | Back In Black
Buffalo Sabres | Return to Royal
Vegas Golden Knights | Always Advance. Never Retreat.
Ottawa Senators | Back To Our Roots
Calgary Flames | Full Retro
Arizona (Pheonix) Coyotes | 25 Years in the Valley
Will we see the North Stars make a return? Maybe the WHA Oilers logo? Or how about the Quebec Nordiques?
…more to come.
