You thought all of the jersey unveilings were done last summer? Not a chance!
After discontinuing the NHL third jerseys in 2017-18 to lessen the load for Adidas, they will be coming back for this season!
NHL's Bill Daly confirmed this at a news conference on Monday, June 18.
"We are bringing back third jerseys next season. I can’t tell you the number exactly, but about a third of the teams will have a different one.”
There have been reports (will get into the details below) that roughly two thirds of the teams will get third jerseys for this season and according to Bill Daley, about of a third of the teams will have a different one from one they had before.
So what were the third jerseys from 2016-17 that got completely abandoned last season? See them all below. Which ones would you like to see make a comeback? The jerseys that we know will return for this season are the Flames, Avalanche, Blue Jackets & Blues (and the Capitals jersey is expected to return as well although it hasn't been unveiled yet).
So now for the report... There was a list that leaked of 19 NHL teams that will be getting third jerseys for next season. The 19 teams are shown below. Most of these teams have since now unveiled their new third jerseys (making this report seem legit) which you can see below. However one team, the Vancouver Canucks, have confirmed that they will not have a third jersey next season which possibly causes doubt for some of the other teams on this list...we will have to wait and see!
Third Jerseys Revealed To Date:
2019-20 NHL Season
The Vancouver Canucks will dawn black and orange for the first time since the 90's in 2019-20 (NOT next season) to celebrate their 50th season. In a fan vote, the "Flying Skate" jersey was chosen by 70% of voters over the "OG Orca" and the "Flying V." However, the "Flying Skate" will only be a historic jersey worn on select nights. The Canucks will also unveil an official third jersey in addition to the "Flying Skate."
