Are they crossing guards? Beauty queens? Or perhaps some crooked Mayor?
We don’t know. But a diagonal sash, by the accounts of a couple of sources, might just be the foundation of the 2016 NHL Stadium Series jerseys. At least for the Detroit Red Wings and Colorado Avalanche.
File this one under 50/50, as in that’s my level of confidence in this, but a few eyeballs are reporting the Red Wings will be wearing a red jersey (yes red, despite being the road team) with a white sash which continues around half-way down the back, the logo on the front will be a “D” with wings coming from one side.
We didn’t get to see an image, just a description, here’s our stab at re-creating the uniform based only on that information:
Additional details like player numbers, arm stripes, etc. are still not-yet-known. Those who do read the articles, please let those who don’t and comment recklessly know about this.
The Colorado Avalanche will reportedly wear white at home with a sash and a logo hybrid “combining their new shoulder patch and the old Rockies logo”:
Again, sleeve striping and number details are missing.
Keeping in mind that these are crude mockups based off of a simple text-only description, Red Wings blog “Wingin’ it in Motown” had this to add yesterday:
BTW, we’re hearing some promising things about the Stadium Series mock-up today doing a great injustice to the real thing #fingerscrossed

Just remember this when they’re released and they look better than what you see above, I’m presenting to you the idea of the design. It’s a sash with those style of logos, the Red Wings logo *will be different* but it’s still a D with wings (according to everyone we’ve talked to).
