The Russian National Hockey Team has unveiled new uniforms as the result of a vote amongst fans on social media and former players.
Incorporating more elements of the Russian flag into it’s design, the new uniform also moves the player name back above the number and returns the “RUSSIA” script to the front of the jersey.
The uniforms are those that are worn in the various European tournaments held in between the World Championships and the World Juniors, the Russian team wears a different uniform design for those two tournaments.
