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.

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.

One final uniform note for the Ducks, the team will hold a series of games honouring various eras of team history which includes a pre-game skate while wearing one of eight throwback Ducks uniform designs, spanning from their expansion season as the Mighty Ducks right up through the modern black-and-bronze “Ducks” era.

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.

***

Calgary Flames

Calgary is going back to the alternate throwback uniform the club wore prior to the switch from Reebok to Adidas. The red/white/gold design was originally worn from their first season in Calgary in 1980 right up through 1994 including during their Stanley Cup Championship in 1989.

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.

The Hurricanes also broke the Internet when they announced they’d wear throwback Hartford Whalers uniforms for two games against the Boston Bruins, one at home and one in Boston. The uniform design was originally worn by the Whalers from 1986-1989, and then again in 1991.

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 existence 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.

The team will also honour the memory of legendary Blackhawks player Stan Mikita who died during the off-season by wearing a commemorative patch featuring Mikita’s #21 in a black circle on the front of their jersey.

***

Colorado Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche are returning to the alternate uniform the team wore before the switch from Reebok to Adidas in 2017. The jersey is navy blue with a white shoulder yoke, the logo on the chest modelled off what was worn by the old Colorado Rockies from 1976-1982 and includes a Colorado state flag on the shoulder.

***

Columbus Blue Jackets

Like the Avalanche, the Columbus Blue Jackets are simply returning to the alternate uniform the team wore pre-Adidas switch. Blue with heritage white shoulders and sleeve striping, the chest logo features a cannon inside a circle with a ribbon and star.

***

Edmonton Oilers

Remember when Edmonton wore a blue uniform? It was waaaaay back in 2017. Anyways, the team is celebrating their 40th anniversary in the NHL this season by bringing back the blue jersey as a throwback alternate uniform. The Oilers will also wear a 40th anniversary patch on the shoulder of their home, road, and alternate jerseys.

***

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.

New York Islanders

Nothing unveiled by the Islanders thus far but the team had their yet-to-be-released third uniform leaked late in the off-season. The leak shows a blue uniform with an “NY” logo on the chest and four diagonal orange stripes on the stick of the “Y”.

Check out the New York Islanders leaked uniform images here

***

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.

The Flyers also unveiled their first mascot in several decades, “Gritty” was introduced in late September 2018, a large, terrifying, scruffy googly-eyed orange monster wearing a Flyers jersey.

***

San Jose Sharks

San Jose introduced a new alternate uniform design (weird, right?), going with an all-black jersey with teal stripes on the sleeves and a re-coloured Sharks logo on the chest and a return of the shark-fin logo on the shoulders. A microchip design was also incorporated on the sleeves in-between the two teal stripes.

Pics, details of the new Sharks alternate uniform here

The NHL also introduced the logo for the 2019 All-Star Game which will be played in San Jose, a good chance the Sharks will be wearing this logo on their jersey throughout the season.

***

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.

More details about the Vancouver Canucks 2019-2020 Heritage Uniform here

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.

***

Washington Capitals

The Stanley Cup champs, like most of the team’s wearing a third uniform in 2019, are bringing back their previous alternate look this season. Washington will wear the retro reds a dozen times in the 2018-19 season, a design patterned off of what the team wore originally from 1974-95.

***

Winnipeg Jets

The Winnipeg Jets introduced the first alternate uniform in the history of the team’s tenure in Winnipeg this off-season, an “aviator blue” sweater with large navy blue and white stripes on each sleeve and around the waist – similar to the jersey design worn by the old Jets in the 1990s. A new scripted wordmark logo on the chest featuring a jet on the cross of the “t”.

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.
