The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals honored the late members of the KHL’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team tonight.  The jerseys they wore featured the Lokomotiv logo on the right chest and a special patch on the inside hem.  These jerseys are currently being auctioned off and all proceeds will go towards the Lokomotiv player’s children and families.

According to an article in the Toronto Star, starting today the Toronto Maple Leafs will be sporting a Purolator patch on their practice jerseys.  It’s not the first time this has happened in the NHL but this sponsorship deal will bring in a new revenue stream for the club and we expect more teams to follow suit in the future.

How would you react if the NHL permitted corporate sponsors to place advertisements on game jerseys as well?  While it doesn’t sound like a very North American thing to do, AHL teams have had sponsor patches located on the right chest for years.
