A running list of the new logos and uniforms for the NHL’s upcoming 2018-2019 season. This season will see far more new uniforms than the usual as the league-wide deal with Adidas enters its second season and allows for the re-introduction of alternate uniforms. We’ve divided this up into two lists, one showing what’s been officially announced and one showing what’s still to come — each list is presented in alphabetical order by team name.
The Ducks have unveiled a commemorative 25th anniversary patch, the patch is a “25” in gold with the bottom half of the “5” shaped like the Ducks’ “D” logo and will be worn on the front right of the Ducks home and road (and third?) uniforms. The Ducks are one of the many who will be unveiling a new alternate uniform sometime during the off-season, we are expecting a jersey featuring their retro “Mighty Ducks” logo.
The Coyotes unveiled their new alternate third uniform on draft night. The alternate uniform is a near-direct copy of the road black “Kachina” jersey the Coyotes wore starting with their first season after moving from Winnipeg in 1996 up through 2003 when they adopted the logo they still use today. The Coyotes will wear the uniform for all Saturday home games as well as their home opener and on Black Friday.
Carolina was the first club to unveil an official third uniform here in NHL’s Adidas era. The Hurricanes went back to black for their alternate look debuting a jersey featuring a new hurricane warning flag logo on the chest, storm grey shoulders, and red stripes with a heathered pattern.
Like their expansion cousins in Anaheim, the Florida Panthers are celebrating their 25th anniversary and will also be wearing a patch on their jersey. The patch incorporates the red cross from the state flag of Florida into a circle with a silver “25” on it with a slightly different version to be worn for each of the home and road jerseys.
Philadelphia snuck in their new alternate uniform, unveiling it to little-to-no fanfare on their official Instagram account, likely because the Flyers are just recycling their 2017 Stadium Series uniform — all black with a few orange stripes, the first black uniform to be a part of the Flyers regular uniform rotation since 2010.
Nothing unveiled by the Sharks yet but as the host team of the 2019 NHL All-Star Game the club wearing a patch to commemorate the event likely for the entire season, but at the least for the first four months. The logo for the 2019 All-Star Game has not actually been unveiled yet, just the placeholder logo you see above from the announcement of San Jose being chosen as host. The Sharks will also unveil an additional uniform, as we learned from the leaked list from earlier this year.
A merchandising sales sheet was leaked on Reddit early on in the off-season showing a list of 19 NHL teams that would be introducing new uniforms. We can confirm that this list is mostly true, all but one of the 19 teams listed will introduce at least one additional uniform this year, Vancouver is the one team on that list who we’re being told will not.
The teams from that list: Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Colorado Avalanche, Columbus Blue Jackets, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, San Jose Sharks, St Louis Blues, Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, Washington Capitals, Winnipeg Jets
Here’s that leak from Reddit:
Some important notes here: a few of these teams will come out with more than one new uniform this year, and very related to that – not all of the teams listed will be unveiling what the league would consider an actual “third jersey” (a “third jersey” must be worn for about a dozen games or so, anything else would be considered a one-off like those worn for a throwback event). Once again, according to our sources, the Vancouver Canucks will not be unveiling anything new.
Several (note: not all) of these uniforms will be designs we’ve seen worn by the team in the past – there are throwback jerseys, outdoor game jerseys, and a few will simply be their previous alternate uniforms carried over from the old Reebok jersey style in the 2016-17 season to the new Adidas cut.
