The Detroit Red Wings are no exception. The team revealed its unique jerseys on Monday for the Stadium Series game it will play against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver on Feb. 27.
The team explained the design in a release:
“The coloration of the uniform is primarily red, with simplified white accents, creating a bold, striking stadium scale visual while staying true to the color identity of the franchise. The crest features a redesigned “D” logo, updated in its design style to connect more directly with the iconic modern day Winged Wheel logo. The single white diagonal stripe across the chest celebrates the iconic stripe of this storied Original Six™ franchise. Its diagonal placement is inspired by modern automotive aesthetics, and is a tribute to the automotive industry that has been a foundation of the city of Detroit. Stadium size numbers on the sleeves and back have been redesigned to better connect with the modern font style of the new “D” crest. The nameplate lettering is arched, as a way of connecting to the design of the team’s current nameplate lettering.”
The uniform will also feature white gloves.READ MORE: Doctor Accused Of Hoarding Dead Kittens In Her Freezer

The jerseys are…strange…to say the least, and not nearly as good as what was worn during the team’s two Winter Classic games in 2009 and 2014.
