Portland, Oregon / New York (Oct. 20, 2022) – adidas and the National Hockey League (NHL®) today unveiled the newest adidas Reverse Retro 2022 jerseys for all 32 NHL® teams. Building on the success of the 2020 program, adidas and the NHL® collaborated with teams this year to design new Reverse Retro jerseys that call back to unique historic moments in each Club’s history.

This season’s adidas Reverse Retro 2022 ADIZERO jerseys combine some of the most remarkable designs yet – including some colors never seen before on ice. All teams will wear the new jerseys during the 2022-23 NHL® season beginning in November, including a number of adidas Reverse Retro matchup nights, led by the Nov. 2 Pittsburgh Penguins-Buffalo Sabres game at 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT.

“The first iteration of Reverse Retro was one of the most popular uniform launches of all time. Fans couldn’t get enough of not only their team’s jersey, but the nostalgia and storytelling leaguewide,” said Dan Near, Senior Director at adidas Hockey. “In 2022, we’re doubling down on the design formula – Your Colors, Your Retros, Remixed – and once again seeking to bring the magic of the sport to Gen Z and fans around the world.”

The 2022 edition of Reverse Retro will see teams across the league bring back championship-level looks from Stanley Cup-winning seasons and beloved logos from bygone eras. From the beautifully bold ‘90s stripes to the newly revamped iconic logos, the creativity of this year’s Reverse Retro designs will have Clubs vying for the top of the jersey power rankings.

“The Reverse Retro 2022 program, our latest collaboration with adidas and all 32 teams, celebrates the intersection of lifestyle, culture and of course hockey with a youthful, fan-forward focus,” said Brian Jennings, NHL Chief Brand Officer and Senior Executive Vice President. “Each design captures the team’s unique spirit that connects the past with the future. We look forward to rekindling the passionate discussion and debate among team fanbases that this simultaneous launch of all 32 designs is sure to generate.”

The Reverse Retro 2022 ADIZERO jerseys are authentic NHL jerseys made with adidas innovation Primegreen: a series of high-performance materials containing a minimum of 50% recycled content. Each team will wear the adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey in multiple games during the 2022-23 NHL® season, including during special head-to-head matchups beginning Nov. 2 and continuing into early 2023.

The adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jerseys for all 32 NHL® teams are available Nov. 15 for $190-$240 in the U.S. and $210-$260 in Canada exclusively at adidas.com, adidas.ca, NHLShop.com, NHLShop.ca and team stores, with wider availability at additional retailers – including NHL Shop NYC at Manhattan West - starting Nov. 20.

from Greg Wyshynski of ESPN,

Which ones were victorious? Here is our ranking of the 32 NHL Reverse Retro jerseys for the 2022-23 season. Keep in mind that we based this just on the jerseys themselves -- some really cool elements will be revealed with the full uniform kits, but they didn't factor in here.

They've taken the 75th anniversary jersey the Wings wore and ruined it.

In fact all the Original 6 jerseys are terrible. I mean why not just throw a few stripes and change some shading on a regular jersey and sell it again:

Or take your pick and re-release the opposite color:

...but no lets change the Wings color scheme and then get some poor saps to buy it.
