But rather than have an abundance of colors out on the ice, the league paired up with Adidas to make colorless jerseys.
Adidas has today introduced some special edition Adizero jerseys for the upcoming All-Star festivities taking place at the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The black-and-white colour scheme is explained as being "inspired by the colours of the game", with crisp white representing the ice surface, and black for the hockey puck.
The jerseys were created in partnership with Parley for the Oceans and feature Parley Ocean Plastic, a trademarked material created from marine plastic that has been collected from the oceans and then spun into thread. By spinning a threat into thread, the adidas x Parley partnership gives new objective to plastic bottles (polyester) and other plastic waste intercepted in marine environments.
The special edition adidas Adizero Authentic Pro NHL All-Star x Parley jerseys will be available for $200 via adidas.com, adidas.CA, NHLShop.com, NHLShop.ca and NHL Team Stores.
Various marine plastic waste materials will be reworked into fibers to help create the materials used in the jerseys.
The NHL released its jerseys for the All-Star Game on Wednesday, and they're trash. Yes, that's right, team logos on the chest instead of the NHL Shield or a conference logo, this is a first for an NHL All-Star team. The Parley logo is featured inside the collar.
The jerseys will be white with black contrast and will feature the crest of each players' team, another first for the league. In addition to the special edition adizero Authentic Pro x Parley jerseys, each player and coach will also receive adidas x Parley gear, including adidas ZNE hoodies and trousers.
