Fans may have gotten an unintentional sneak peek at what their favourite players will be wearing when they participate in the 2022 All-Star Game in February.
According to Icethetics.com, the most recent All-Star jerseys have reportedly leaked online ahead of their official unveiling at a date that has yet to be determined.
The two jerseys show the NHL reverting back to a simpler design than in years past, with the league crest sitting front and centre on the uniform, while blue and red serve as the primary two colours. There are also two large stars running down the sleeve of each sweater, leading into some black and white accent lines, respectively.
With the All-Star Game set to take place in Las Vegas this year, it’s interesting that the NHL did not lean into the aesthetic of its host city when designing the uniforms, perhaps using the Golden Knights’ colours or including fun nods to the spirit of the city such as a dice or playing card graphic.
Nonetheless, these are two very nice, streamlined designs that should please fans on a broad level while not breaking any new ground.
Any additional uniform releases have yet to be revealed.
