In addition to offering the first look at the Vegas Golden Knights’ uniform design, the NHL and new outfitting partner Adidas unveiled an entire collection of sweaters on Tuesday night.
Tweaks outweighed complete overhauls, but there will be some fresh looks in addition to Vegas next season. The Minnesota Wild, Edmonton Oilers, Carolina Hurricanes, Colorado Avalanche, New Jersey Devils and Nashville Predators are among teams sporting discernible changes with their new technologically-advanced ADIZERO sweaters.
Here’s a quick look at the 31 home uniforms for the 2017-18 season.

For the most part, Adidas simplified the designs. It works for the Avalanche, which went back to a classic look from the past, but not so much for the Predators, who failed to incorporate some of the interesting detail from their old sweater.
Minnesota and Edmonton made significant changes. The Wild now have a thick white stripe under the logo on the front of their forest green jersey, while the Oilers seemed to incorporate their old look on the preferred orange base.
Elsewhere, teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, for example, took the opportunity to include personalized detail inside the collar.

The shift from Reebok to Adidas means that NHL teams will not have third sweaters for at least the upcoming season, meaning we may have more to critique next summer.
