Today is the day: the NHL is finally back!!! It really gets going tomorrow night at 10 PM ET / 9 PM CT, Ducks @ Golden Knights, but whatever, semantics. Hockey is back, and I have emotions.
With hockey returning (in case you hadn’t heard), I thought I’d do something very timely and Power Rank the Reverse Retro jerseys that were unveiled in November. Buckle up.
1. Anaheim Ducks
I mean, obviously this is number one. Look at that thing. It’s glorious. Plus Wild Wing is wearing a jersey with the actual best logo ever, which just so happens to be his face.
2. Minnesota Wild
Not a Wild fan, but I love this jersey. That’s all I have to say on the matter.
3. Colorado Avalanche
It’s like the Nordiques jersey, but in Avalanche colors. Dope.
4. Arizona Coyotes
When your franchise is irrelevant, you do this. The Yotes knocked this one out of the park.
5. Los Angeles Kings
Clean. Simple. Fantastic jersey. I can only imagine how many of these LeBron James owns. Except he definitely has the “S” removed. In the vein of Jessica Simpson in Season 2 Episode 21 of Newlyweds when she wears a Knicks sweatshirt with the “K” and “S” removed so it says “NICK” because that was her husband’s name. If you know you know. (Me. I know. My wife probably too.)
6-26. 21 other teams
If you want to see all of them, knock yourself out.
27-31. Trash, in alphabetical order by city
Columbus Blue Jackets
Detroit Red Wings
St. Louis Blues
And there you have it. A comprehensive Power Ranking of some jerseys that will be worn a couple of times this year. Welcome back NHL, welcome back.
