NHL to Stick to Two Jersey Styles Next Season
Word came out this week that NHL teams will be limited to only road and home jerseys next season, meaning that alternate third jerseys will not be used next season. This comes as Adidas takes over for Reebok as the official outfitter of NHL uniforms. Some teams will have to decide on adopting their alternate jerseys as their primary home or away jerseys.
