The NHL's Reverse Retro jerseys were a sensation two years ago, creating significant sales and conversation among hockey fans. Adidas felt the pressure of creating a sequel to that blockbuster with its 2022-23 season retro sweaters.
As with any sequel, there are a few differences from the original. The 32 new Reverse Retro jerseys feature more white sweaters than the 2020 collection. Please recall that because of the COVID pandemic, the 2020-21 season was played without interdivisional games. Now, Adidas hopes to see more retro vs. retro games, such as the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres game on Nov. 2.
Which ones were victorious Here is our ranking of the 32 NHL Reverse Retro jerseys for the 2022-23 season. Keep in mind that we based this just on the jerseys themselves -- some really cool elements will be revealed with the full uniform kits, but they didn't factor in here.
This is a mix of the team's stick-and-palm secondary logo that's been with it since the 1990s and the light blue from the third jerseys it rocked in 2009. The rays of the sun are slightly raised to give the crest a 3D quality. The colors on the stripes pay homage to the Panthers' current primary colors. The rest feels like you're staring at a frozen blue Hawaiian through a pair of expensive sunglasses.
These are essentially the Seals' 1974 home jerseys with \"Sharks\" written on them instead, and they're sublime: a little California love, a little Jackie Moon. That Seals team won 19 games. Given what we've seen from San Jose this season, perhaps it's just dressing the part.
The Blues' Reverse Retro is based on a 1966 prototype worn by the team's ownership a year before the expansion franchise actually hit the ice, which is like giving an Oscar to a teaser trailer. Despite being their second most prominent color, this is the first primarily gold jersey the Blues have worn. It incorporates the light blue seen on their Winter Classic jerseys.
But the Canucks Army blog notes that Vancouver fans (A) feel this look is too close to that of the Abbotsford Canucks, who also use Johnny Canuck, and (B) were hoping for a less predictable experiment, like \"a green and blue edition of the Flying Vee or Flying Skate jerseys.\"
An homage to their 1991 NHL 75th anniversary jerseys, which were red and white, this bold red and black look is accented by a DETROIT wordmark inspired by the 1920s Detroit Cougars. For a young team developing its swagger, we'll allow it.
Otherwise, the current \"victory green\" color integrated with this classic design makes for a fine-looking sweater. But we're now two Reverse Retro jerseys deep and the \"Mooterus\" has yet to return, so we really can't go any higher than this for Dallas.
Sure. It's very much an Ottawa Senators jersey. But we'll wait and see the full kit, as Adidas notes these Ottawa jerseys will be \"presented in a powerful black head-to-toe visual including the helmet, pant and sock\" complemented by \"a thick super-sized player name and number system.\"
To that end: These Lightning jerseys should have remained buried under whatever landfill in which they were decomposing. Tampa Bay wore these jerseys 1996-99, during a time when the NHL had its share of ghastly third jerseys. They had storm waves across the waist; lightning bolts on the sleeves; and, in perhaps the single worst aesthetic touch for an NHL jersey in the past 30 years, \"bold rain\" flecked across the front of the sweater that looked as if it was taken straight from an 8-bit video game.
Dan Near of Adidas offers a brief rebuttal about this jersey: \"There were some jerseys from that era that we presented and the teams weren't excited about. There were others that the teams embraced right away. This isn't a permanent choice. This is a celebration of a moment in time and the nostalgia about a team. Maybe we don't have to take ourselves so seriously and bring something back that might have been polarizing but that in today's day and age is very trend-right. I give a lot of acclaim to the Lightning for making a risk well worth taking.\"

\"There's the design process, then the procurement of all the materials and then production,\" Jennings said. \"When we were winding down the initial 1.0 drop of Reverse Retro jerseys, we were already starting to think about the iterations for this drop.\"
The project is too big of an undertaking to produce yearly, but Jennings wanted fans to have another Reverse Retro jersey collection quickly. All jerseys took 18-24 months to produce, and Jennings credits the adidas design team for their haste with the process.

St. Louis Blues: The Blues honor their inaugural jersey presented in 1966, which was a prototype worn by the ownership of the club a year before the team hit the ice. The gold and blue pairing is inspired by the Blues' third jersey and other vintage uniforms, including the 2017 and 2022 Winter Classic jerseys.

The retro V-neck with collars gives it an especially reto feel as the collars have long become obsolete in today's football shirt design. It's also a special shirt as it's the season when the Inter Milan won UEFA Cup with a 2-1 win against Roma.
I was fully ready to dislike these Canadiens jerseys when it dawned on me that these are Expos tributes! Yes, it feels weird to mess with the iconic Montreal red and blue but this is a welcome surprise nonetheless.
Not only are these jerseys much better than the red Reverse Retro monstrosities from before, they also glow in the dark! I love the decision to go with scrip lettering as well, as it really brings the whole look together. Definitely the Golden Knights best alternate jerseys so far.
A California Golden Seals reference immediately boosts the Sharks into top five territory. What a throwback! They may be a hokey nostalgia play, but it feels good to see these jerseys on a modern NHL team.
These Panthers jerseys are so delightful and fun. The palm tree and stick framed by the sun logo finally takes center stage in a jersey that is completely evocative of the state of Florida. Beautiful stuff here, Panthers.
