We are just days away from 2019 and of course, a new year usually means changes will be coming to a few uniforms across the National Hockey League. The website Icethetics.co always has all the information on the changes to expected for the upcoming year, and one of them will shock you! According to the information provided by Icethetics.co, changes are expected to take place in Chicago where the new primary uniforms are listed for the Blackhawks in 2019-20.
Here is how the page breaks it down when reporting on the changes to be expected:
The biggest surprise of the catalog for me was seeing new primary uniforms listed for the Blackhawks in 2019-20. That would be insanity! Or would it? Chicago’s jerseys are untouchable and everyone knows it. Don’t forget Montreal was in this position in 2015 before they simply revealed a new collar design, leaving everything else alone. Is that what the Hawks are doing? They haven’t used a lace-up collar since 1965, but could it be back in 2019-20? As much as I dislike the Adidas collars, some have grown on me. Chicago’s has not. At all.
The Blackhawks aren't the only team expected to make some tweaks to their jerseys. Icethetics.co also lists the Carolina Hurricanes and the Vancouver Canucks as teams looking to make a few changes to their uniform. The Canucks have also confirmed that there will be a new third jersey in 2019-20 — in addition to the throwback sweater fans voted for over the summer.
"It’s unclear whether the Canucks are working on sweeping changes or maybe just updating the crest to remove the superfluous “Vancouver” arched across the top. But I also wouldn’t be that shocked to see a new primary logo to coincide with the 50th anniversary."
Several teams are also expected to add a third jersey, including the Anaheim Ducks, Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, New York Rangers, Ottawa Senators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Canucks and Vegas Golden Knights.
A lot of changes to come in 2019! See all of them and what is expected to take place here: https://www.icethetics.co/jers...
