Every year, hockey fans argue who has the best uniforms in the game. Whether it be the classic Chicago jerseys or the newer style to the Calgary sweaters. Will we ever agree on a number 1 jersey scheme in the game? Probably not, but here are my top 5 (my top 5, this will be biased).

5. Calgary- The Flames start of this list. Old school and new style Calgary jerseys are just awesome. Whether it was the white, black or red C in the middle. Calgary just seems to know what they’re doing. Oh yeah don’t forget they used to be the Atlanta Flames too, those ones were also awesome.

4. Detroit- The Wings have a classic two color scheme. Not much can beat the Red and White. The Winged Wheel is also a killer combo as well. No question in my mind they deserve to be on this list. Original 6 too, gotta love the hustle out of the Motor City

3. Boston- The Spoked B is near and dear to my heart. The Black and Gold have been a staple in the game since the leagues inception. The colors scream Boston and how brutal of a beat down that they are going to hit you with. You can say I’m a homer, and yes that’s true. But come on when you look at hockey history, the Black and Gold always find their way there.

2. New York Rangers- Yeah, the Rangers make the list. Watching the rivalry night games when they dawn their whites is just too cool. They are just sweet plain and simple. The Alternates are fire too, the Rangers just know what to do when it comes to jerseys. Rangers beat the Bs, on the Alternate factor. The Bruins Alts in my opinion stink, and I love the Navy blue on the Blue Shirts.

1. Chicago- Listen, there is no better jersey in hockey than the Blackhawks. The Hawks have possibly the bet logo in sports to go along with their colors. With the players they have sporting their colors, there’s no doubt in my mind that they are the best. Imagine Patty Kane in anything other than a Chicago jersey, that’s right you can’t. Their reds, whites, or blacks beat any teams sweaters. Their winter classic jerseys this year could be the best ones made to the day. Chicago wins, and it’s not even close.

Honorable Mention:

  • Minnesota NorthStars
  • 90’s Phoenix Coyotes
  • 90’s Buffalo Sabres
  • Hartford Whalers
  • Quebec Nordiques
  • Mighty Ducks of Anaheim(Disney Era Ducks)
