Adidas didn’t mess with a classic. At least, not too much.

The NHL’s new jersey manufacturer unveiled next season’s uniforms, and the Blackhawks home reds and road whites look pretty much the same as they have for years, with a slightly different white collar than the Reebok version. While some of the jerseys got minor tweaks, such as changes in stripes or piping, some were slightly more dramatic, including the Colorado Avalanche, the Minnesota Wild, the Nashville Predators, and the New Jersey Devils. The new Vegas Golden Knights home jersey is gray, with black, gold and red accents on the sleeves.

Adidas said the jerseys are lighter, cooler and stronger than previous ones.
