Is Reebok Backtracking?

From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail,

Is Reebok in the process of replacing all NHL jerseys at company expense with new uniforms made of the old materials, as reported on a Boston Herald blog Thursday.

Not according to NHL senior vice president of communications Bernadette Mansur, who said today that while Reebok is not jettisoning the new design, it is modifying them on a player-by-player basis, depending upon their individual needs.

“There are certain panels on the front of the jersey which are being replaced with a performance fabric, an air-knit fabric,” said Mansur. “They are being given to the players who are requesting them. There is no going back to the old jerseys, no. It’s just the use of an alternate (fabric) to resolve specific issues.”
