The Los Angeles Kings this afternoon unveiled a new throwback-inspired alternate uniform on the eve of the start of the 2021-22 NHL season.
With a heavy nod to the uniforms of the late ’80s and early-to-mid ’90s, the uniforms are white with the Kings’ 1988-98 logo on the chest.
Metallic silver is now present throughout the design whereas the originals used a flat grey. Gloves are now white instead of black, and the striping is considerably different here in 2021 versus 1988-98 as the arms and around the waist on the jersey, and the sock striping are all seeing significant changes.
The biggest change is to the helmet as the Kings will pair this set with a metallic chrome silver bucket, similar to what the team wore during the 2020 Stadium Series game in Colorado.
The Authentic adizero Primegreen Alternate Jersey reintroduces the Kings’ 90s logo that was so important to this city and overall pop culture as a permanent alternate mark. The crest and stripes have a full proper silver material to them to honor that the club’s primary colors truly are Black, White and Silver.
Combined with the chrome helmets originally debuted at the Kings-Colorado Avalanche Stadium Series game in 2020 in Colorado Springs and white player gloves, it is a fresh, new modern look to the whole kit which also includes a special 90s Era logo patch on the player’s pants.– Los Angeles Kings, October 11, 2021.
Los Angeles will début the new set at home against the Washington Capitals on November 17th, they’ll be worn a total of fifteen times throughout the 2021-22 season. The new set will replace the grey alternate uniforms the Kings had been wearing off-and-on since 2016.
