NHL 2018-19 New Uniforms & Logos


A running list of the new logos and uniforms for the NHL’s upcoming 2018-2019 season. This season will see far more new jerseys 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 teams have already announced and one showing what we expect to come — each list appears in alphabetical order by team name.

Last updated August 29, 2018

OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED

Anaheim Ducks

Anaheim unveiled a very retro-heavy third uniform in recognition of their 25th anniversary season on July 21st. The alternate jersey features the original Mighty Ducks logo the team wore from 1993-2006 with the two hockey sticks re-coloured to match today’s shade of Ducks orange, continuing this the base of the jersey is also black instead of eggplant. The original colours are still present in the diagonal striping at the bottom of the sweater and on each sleeve, a new shoulder yoke design is added with the current Ducks logo as a patch on each shoulder.

The Ducks have also 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 goes on the front right of the Ducks home and road uniforms.

Arizona Coyotes

The Coyotes unveiled their new alternate third uniform on draft night. This alternate attire 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.

Boston Bruins

The Bruins have announced the logo they’ll be using for the 2019 Winter Classic game they’ll be participating in at Notre Dame against the Chicago Blackhawks. The logo is a modern tweak of what the club used as their primary logo in the 1930s and 1940s. No information on the uniform yet but considering the images the team used to accompany the unveiling you could expect to see it based on those uniforms of the mid 1930s.

Carolina Hurricanes


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.

Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks 2019 Winter Classic Logo

The Blackhawks revealed that they will be using a logo based largely off of their original design from their first eight seasons of existance for the 2019 Winter Classic at Notre Dame against the Boston Bruins. The logo is black-and-white, as the original was, but updates the Native American head to the modern Blackhawks logo as well as eliminating the space that was present in the Blackhawks name right up until 1986.

Florida Panthers


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 logo incorporates the red cross from the state flag of Florida into a circle with a silver “25” on it with a slightly different version for each of the home and road jerseys.

New Jersey Devils

The Devils are sticking with team tradition by not wearing a third/alternate uniform this season, but they are wearing a “heritage uniform”. Throwing back to their first decade in New Jersey, the Devils will be wearing a uniform based on their home white set with red and green accents originally worn from 1982-1992. As it’s not an official alternate uniform it can only be worn a handful of times and can be replaced or eliminated following the season, the Devils have said it will be worn four times at home in 2018-19.

***

Philadelphia Flyers


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. They later made a more formal announcement showing us the actual Adidas cut of the design.

***

San Jose Sharks


Nothing unveiled by the Sharks yet but as the host team of the 2019 NHL All-Star Game it’s very likely the club is wearing a patch to commemorate the event, at least for the first half. The logo for the 2019 All-Star Game has not yet been unveiled, so far it’s just the placeholder logo you see above from the announcement of when San Jose became the host. The Sharks will also reveal an additional uniform, as we learned from the leaked list from earlier this year.

St. Louis Blues

 

The St Louis Blues will be bringing back the uniform they wore for the Winter Classic in 2017, a uniform based heavily off of what the club wore during their first several seasons in the 1960s and 1970s. The 2017 Winter Classic uniform was so popular at the time the Blues sought and received permission from the league to wear them an additional six times at home during the second half of that 2016-17 season.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks are NOT wearing their new uniform in 2018-19, instead, they’ll be waiting until their 50th anniversary season in 2019-20. Regardless, it’s a uniform announcement that occurred this off-season. Vancouver will be wearing their black/gold/red “flying spaghetti skate” uniforms for a series of games next season following a fan vote in which it was selected ahead of two other classic team uniforms.

In addition to this heritage sweater, the Canucks will also have a new third uniform for the 2019-20 season. No details at all about this uniform at this time as we’re still more than a year out.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets announced in August that the team will unveil their third uniform at a season ticket event at their home arena on September 14th. The announcement came via a mailer sent out to ticket holders and included a keychain showing a new logo we hadn’t seen before, we presume this logo will be featured prominently on their new uniform.

STILL TO COME

A merchandising sales sheet 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 will not (according to our sources) but instead wear their new “heritage” uniform in 2019-20.

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. Related to that – not all of the teams listed will be unveiling what the league would consider an actual “third jersey” (one which sees game action about a dozen times in a season, anything else is 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 (not all) of these jerseys will be designs we’ve seen worn by the team in the past – there are throwback jerseys, outdoor game jerseys, and a few will be nothing more than their previous alternate uniforms carried over from the old Reebok jersey style back in 2016-17 to the new Adidas cut.
