RBK Jerseys Here to Stay

Stephen Harris at the Boston Herald was the originator of some controversy yesterday when he noted:

According to sources in the B’s dressing room, Reebok has been unable to correct problems with the new jerseys introduced this season across the NHL and will replace them at the company’s expense with new uniforms made of the old materials.

This morning, Harris reports differently:

NHL senior vice president for communications Bernadette Mansur called about what she said were inaccuracies in a note here yesterday about the troublesome new Reebok jerseys.

Mansur said there will not be an across-the-board, leaguewide replacement of the shirts, which many players say tend to hold sweat inside, leading to drenched gloves. She said there are many players who have no problem with the new apparel, while those who want the replacements will get them.

Further, she said, the new shirts will not be made from the same material as in years past. They will have a new-performance fabric on their front half, with the back unchanged.
