The fact that I can't stop thinking about the whole @adidashockey#Adizero 2018 NHL All Star Central Division uniform set ( Jersey, Socks ,and Pants/Covers) might make me just a bit obessed on how Adidas has really knocked all of the NHL jerseys out of the park. #TeamAdidaspic.twitter.com/XNftvslCGd— P - David Krepps (@dnk900) January 30, 2018
The National Hockey League and Adidas have officially unveiled the new adidas Adizero jerseys and pants for the 2018 NHL All-Star Game, which will be hosted by the Tampa Bay Lightning at AMALIE Arena on Sunday, January 28th at 3:30 pm. ET.
The new uniforms, inspired by the state of Florida, pays homage to the history of the league while also celebrating the host city.
Utilizing the primary colors from the host team as a base, the uniforms are centered around the native color palette of black, royal blue, white and grey, while a custom color treatment featuring the “energy” colors of UV yellow and solar red have been uniquely applied to evoke the warm, vibrant sunset tones and the energy of the Tampa Bay area.
Creating a more contemporary and sleek aesthetic through bold color blocking, the uniforms are highlighted by a silver metallic film with four die-cut stars, one for each division, that allows the body fabric to show through. Accenting the color palette and jerseys, a custom-designed number font was inspired by the suspension cables of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, a Tampa Bay landmark.
Additional design details include the name of each division (Atlantic, Central, Metropolitan, Pacific) in the back of the collar, along with the All-Star event patch on the right shoulder and corresponding full-color team patch for each player on the left shoulder. Additionally, the NHL Shield crest on the front of the chest has been developed with adizero lightweight materials and kiss-cut silver twill, making the crest more flexible and breathable for the athlete.
