Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: NHL, Rumors

Whether it’s their uniform, their logo, or both, it seems like so many teams have a revolving closet of jerseys to wear, whether they be home, away, alternate, second alternate, throwbacks, special events, or whatever. They’re doing all they can to appeal to fans by looking fresh and unique. However, some fans are just as excited by a new look as they are of having to spend the money on a dozen different jerseys.
