When the NHL’s new uniforms come out, they will look like the Flyers’ jerseys
The NHL’s uniform changes are coming and the Philadelphia Flyers are getting some big news on Monday when they wear their new uniforms for the first time since the team’s debut season in 1996.
As the team announced the uniforms in a video, the Flyers will wear black pants and black socks on Monday.
The jersey design has not been announced.
“It’s going to be very similar to the first one, just a few more things,” general manager Ron Hextall said.
“The jersey is a lot lighter, and I think it’s a lot cleaner.
I think that it’s going be a lot easier to wear.”
The jerseys were unveiled Tuesday in a ceremony in Philadelphia, and the team will wear the jerseys on its home ice on Monday night against the Minnesota Wild at Wells Fargo Center.
The new uniforms are made of a soft, matte white fabric that blends in with the ice.
The jersey design will be unveiled by Flyers assistant general manager and head of hockey operations Bryan McCabe, who also serves as the team and general manager.
Hextalt, who said the new uniforms will be used by all 27 teams, is the only general manager in the league to wear his jersey.
In the video, Hextally said the jerseys will be worn in an open-air environment on the ice, with no color restrictions on the game.
“The jersey was designed by a guy who has worked in the game for a long time and is the designer of all the jerseys in the NHL,” Hextalls said.
“He’s a really great hockey player and a great designer.
So we’re really excited to have him here, and we’re excited to see what he comes up with.”
Hextall says he’s also excited about the jerseys being used by other teams.
“They’ve got some of the most successful teams in the history of the league,” Heptal said.
