BTW...this year only Home & Away jerseys are authorized (no more 3rd jerseys [if the NHL wanted to go back to 'old-school'...they should of added the change back to the 'old rule' of wearing white at home and dark for the road]). :001_rolle

Fans will be treated to a uniform unveiling, the NHL Awards, and the expansion draft all in one night! :thumbsup:

"Speaking to the press before the start of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced that Adidas will unveil their line of jerseys on June 21.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement that 13 teams will have new uniforms for the upcoming 2017-18 season.

Only 13 of the 31 teams will have different designs, while the remainder of the NHL will be upgraded to Adidas. Reebok, a subsidiary of Adidas, was the previous uniform designer from the 2007-08 season onward. Back in January, the NHL announced Adidas would take over the role for the foreseeable future.

The notable takeaway from this news is that the Vegas Golden Knights jersey will be revealed to the world for the first time. The logo, color scheme, and name of the Golden Knights were announced in November, and June 21 will be the first time fans can get a look at their uniforms before they hit the ice in the fall.

The jersey unveiling will be held on Wednesday, June 21, alongside the NHL Awards and the NHL Expansion Draft in
Las Vegas, NV.

Paul Lucas at Uniwatch had a good write-up on the unveiling. No great surprises, just some tweaks to the existing jerseys like different striping around the sleeves and the bottom of some jerseys. In other words, no return to the Captain Highliner logo for the Islanders or the Barney Rubble Slug for the Sabres.
All in all a pretty "meh" unveiling. As for the odd looking ankle thingy's around the ankles of the Vegas-Soon-To-Be-Quebec-City mannequin, my guess is they're modified money belts for the home team to store their casino chips...
 
The ankle issue is just the socks. The tongues of the skate boot's been tucked up into the sock and on the left leg it looks as if the sock may have been pulled out of the boot and overtop of the tendon guard at the back. But tendon guards are so narrow now that that may not be the case and you just can't see it because of the angle of our view.

I wear my shin pads with the boot tongue tucked under them.

The "home whites" rule was only adopted with the first expansion back in 1968. Before that, it was "road whites" for decades. So if you want to go "old school" ... we're doin' it right now!

Yes...the Golden Knights do wear gold 'accent' white gloves when they're 'on the road', but look close...the team wears gold 'accent' black gloves (I knew the white gloves would 'clash' with their Home jersey motif), for their Home games.

Ain't that 'somethin'? The only team with Home & Away Gloves. :001_rolle

Very 'smart & savvy' move...they look cool (I'm liking this 'kit' more and more),...besides no team wears whites gloves (sans the possibility during event games like the Heritage Classic, Al-star Game, etc...), but 'fyi' the former California Golden Seals did briefly wear white skates
. :thumbsup:
