Kings officially unveil new third jersey for 2018-19 – icethetics.co

Anyway, they gray jersey has gotten mixed reaction since its 2016 debut. The retro purple and gold designs have definitely been more popular with fans. But as I’ve always said, I think this is the right way to do a third jersey – a third color with a unique design. Save the straight throwback jerseys for special games.

The only thing I’d change about this jersey is the crest. It’s not exactly the most creative logo in the NHL. Do we really need to see it on three sweaters? Maybe bring back the crown for the gray jersey like they did with the 2014 Stadium Series. Or – here’s a crazy thought – something new entirely. That’s a tougher ask in today’s NHL, though.

Only the Hurricanes, Islanders and Jets – maybe the Blue Jackets depending on how you look at it – have a crest that’s unique to their third jersey. The rest are all versions of logos used on past or present primary uniforms.

All right, before I go off on a tangent here I’ll wrap up.

The Kings will wear this jersey for 12 Saturday home games beginning on Nov. 24 – at which point it will be the 77th jersey worn in the NHL this season. (But who’s counting?)

They also announced it’ll be worn two more times for road games in late December but did not specify dates. If I had to guess, based on their schedule I’d say the games in San Jose and Las Vegas on Dec. 22 and 23 are good possibilities. But they also have a game in Denver on New Year’s Eve.
