Elsewhere, the Blackhawks have updated home and road jerseys on the way for 2019-20. I don’t anticipate anything more than an update to the collar—as seen in the inset image at left.
I don’t know for sure that we’ll see it tonight, but it would make sense. Chicago picks third overall tonight barring any trades, so we should get our answer pretty early on in the proceedings.
The Hurricanes have a new road jersey in the pipeline but I’m not sure we’ll see that tonight. Carolina picks at 28 so we could have a considerable wait ahead of us.
The Ducks, Bruins, Oilers, Panthers, Predators, and Golden Knights all have third jerseys in the works according to the Adidas catalog sent to retailers. However, I haven’t heard anything that leads me to believe any of them are planning to launch those tonight. But the list is here so we’ll keep an eye on all of these teams.
Speaking of thirds, the Rangers, Red Wings, and Wild were also listed in that Adidas catalog. But I’ve since heard through various sources that, for one reason or another, these teams may have put alternate uniforms on the back burner for 2019-20. (Sorry to break the bad news.)
Last thing, of course, are the outdoor games. Between the Heritage Classic, Winter Classic, and Stadium Series, six teams will have new one-off jerseys but we’re not likely to see any of those tonight. They typically come later on.
That’s all I’ve got for now but pay attention for any surprises!
