Today was an exciting day around the NHL as Adidas revealed the reverse retro jerseys for each NHL franchise for this season.
Adidas started this reserve retro jersey concept for the 2021 season and released jerseys during that shortened season, but they did not unveil new ones for each team during the last season.
The reserve retros are back for this 2022-2023 season and we got to see some interesting jerseys as each franchise announced theirs. These new reserve retros had some teams in their vintage old fashion logos which fanbases have grown to love including the New York Islanders’ fisherman logo, the New York Rangers Statue of Liberty Logo, the Vancouver Canucks Johnny Canuck logo, and many others. You can see all of the jerseys here.
The Winnipeg Jets’ new jersey puts a spin on a classic logo and you can read all about the Jets’ new alternates by clicking the link here or by visiting the “NEXT” link at the bottom of this article.
