They’re (finally) here!
The Vegas Golden Knights will soon reveal their expansion draft roster (and the potentially many side deals with various clubs). They had other business on Tuesday, as Vegas revealed its brand new Adidas jerseys for its inaugural NHL season at an unveiling party.
Have a look:
The league has since unveiled the new uniforms for each of its 31 clubs. The NHL announced in September of 2015 that Adidas would be its new official outfitter. The new jerseys are advertisement-free.
Lighter – Featuring new cresting materials and construction technology, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey reduces crest weight by up to 46%, while a single layer perforated numbering system reduces number weight by up to 60%, in order to deliver a new jersey that is up to 19% lighter when compared to the current NHL Jersey.
Cooler – The ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey features adidas Clima® technology in each of the jersey fabrics to deliver breathability and enhanced performance. Combining moisture management technology and a streamlined silhouette to maximize air flow circulation with materials that are up to 133% more permeable than fabrics currently used on ice allows athletes to be cooler.
Stronger – Constructed for durability, the ADIZERO Authentic NHL jersey fabrics are up to 27% stronger in burst testing and up to 72% tougher in abrasion testing compared to the current NHL jersey.
