NHL Special Jerseys

The following team pages link to all known information on that team’s special jerseys that have been used over time.

There is plenty of information that is easily available to find on home, road, alternate, heritage, Winter Classic, Stadium Series, anniversary, and nearly every other type of jersey that an NHL team has worn in the last 20 years.  I can tell you from experience, and from handling them, pretty much everything that needs to be known.  I can tell you that Quebec only started sewing their fleur-de-lis onto their game jerseys because a league edict forced them to do so; before that, it was a heat-pressed vinyl film that would disintegrate with laundering and time.  I can tell you that the back numbers on Ottawa’s old red alternates look like they were applied with a hydraulic press; they all have the visible raised outline of the curved trim on the jersey showing through the numbers.

But there is precious little information on the fun warmups that teams occasionally wear.  There’s no central spot where I or any of my fellow collectors can find when their favorite team went from a full-color logo to a green-and-white one on their St Patrick’s Day warmup jersey, or what the actual design on the Hockey Fights Cancer one looks like.

My goal is to remedy this lack of information.  This will serve as that central spot.
