For our money, the NHL has the best uniforms in pro sports. OK. There. We said it.
Let’s start with stability, kids. From top to bottom, the basic hockey look has changed very little since helmets became mandatory four decades ago. Teams have a home uni, a road uni, and in most cases, an alternate model. That’s it. You don’t see many of those needless, cockamamie rebrands designed to pad the bottom line and take up closet space.
Then there are the Original Six teams, bless 'em. They scream style and tradition. Every one of 'em. As you’ll soon discover, the Original Expansion Six aren’t bad, either. By our count, at least nine of them rank among the dozen best unis in the league overall.
And another thing: In pucks, they’re called sweaters, not jerseys. Is that cool or what?
Here’s where every team set ranks, from worst to first.
