The Panthers had their first opportunity to test the NHL’s new Reebok uniforms during Friday’s practice. They drew mixed reviews….
Some players, like forward Ville Peltonen, did not notice a difference. Others complained that the jerseys limited their range of motion.
But defenseman Steve Montador pointed out a lesser-known feature of the new uniforms.
“I think initially there could be some different types of fights because there is less to grab on to,” said Montador, who has been in eight fights this season. “It could cause a little bit of a learning curve to grab onto and prevent a knockout punch from coming your way.”
