Away going white
TSN.ca is reporting that the National Hockey League’s board of governors has approved a major change for the league next year regarding teams’ uniforms.The board voted on and passed the motion that teams will start to wear their dark jerseys at home next year, while the white-based jerseys will be used on the road. The move is partly due to tradition; the NHL’s jersey policy was this way until 1967, when the league expanded to twelve teams. The other reason is that teams often prefer to wear their alternate jerseys at home, meaning that the visiting team would usually have to carry two sets of jerseys on their road trips. This way, teams can choose more easily when to sport their alternate jerseys, without having to make arrangements with visiting teams.
