BREAKING: The NHL Has Chosen Its New Hockey Jersey Provider and Fans Are Disappointed

With the Adidas era of NHL jerseys coming to an end, a new provider was required.

The NHL has made its decision, and fans are dissatisfied.

The NHL has selected Fanatics as the jersey supplier for NHL players.
This is disappointing news, as their subpar fan jerseys have been widely mocked since their release in 2017.

It’s safe to assume that the basic fan jerseys will receive minor upgrades and be priced similarly to the flagship jerseys.

The league made a terrible decision, and committing to it until 2035 is even worse.

It just feels the NHL along with Gary Bettman are only doing this all for the $$$$$ and with no actual care to where that money comes from, the fans.

“Fanatics will replace Adidas as the NHL’s outfitter of on-ice uniforms and authentic jerseys beginning after next season. The deal is signed through 2035.

There likely won’t be any innovative design changes until 2026-27 at the earliest.

Fanatics has grown quite the bad reputation in recent years. With cheap materials, bad customer service and awful quality control, this would be most hockey fans’ last choice.”

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
