New Uniforms For Next Season?

Icethetics.info reported back in January that 10 teams have confirmed they will make uniform change next year but could it be that all teams next year will be sporting something new?

Well, not completely new designs but we have reason to believe that the on-ice jerseys next year will feature the “Reebok” word mark opposed to the current Reebok Vector logo.  Reebok has already started doing this a few years back when they first introduced equipment and quickly moved from the “RBK” and Vector logo to the common day “Reebok” word marks.

Many retailers (both online and in traditional stores) are marking down the retail Edge 1.0 7187 jerseys to prices as low as $149.99!  These jerseys are only available in limited size runs so that’s a good indication these are being blown out at clearance prices and not just a seasonal sale where they will restock later on.

Also being speculated right now are Edge 2.0 7287 jerseys being available to the public as soon as next season.  The majority of professional players have already made the switch to these jerseys made of air knit (with a few panels of x-trafil) and so far only the minor leagues like the AHL have been able to sell 2.0 to the public.

What will be new for next year?  Will we see the x-trafil fabric scrapped altogether for the on-ice product?  Will this be the triumphant return of a full air-knit jersey?
