And, of course, the Dallas Stars officially unveiled their wild neon coloured jerseys earlier this month.


Now Adidas, the official uniform manufacturer of the NHL, has released an online teaser that seems to reveal jersey colours for a number of NHL teams.

There's a lot to take in there. It's quick, but I thought I saw purple and gold in there? Does this mean we'll be seeing the return of the "Crown Royal" styled Los Angeles Kings jerseys?

From Kings employee and hockey historian Mike Commito:


YES! Shades of Marcel Dionne!

Call me crazy, but I'm absolutely in LOVE with the old school purple and gold Kings look. It's unlike anything else in the NHL and it just POPS on screen. Remember a few years back when the Kings dusted these off? They looked incredible.

Incredible! Let's go!
