It's been quite the month for jersey reveals.
The Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators added to the growing list of new threads in hockey, unveiling the respective jerseys that will be worn when the teams meet for their upcoming Stadium Series matchup in Nashville on February 26th, 2022.
According to an official release, Nashville's jersey was designed by Adidas and is made of recycled materials. The front crest spelling out "SMASHVILLE" is comprised of letters of different sizes and fonts, which is a nod to old letterpress jazz posters that are a vital part of the city's rich musical history.
The inclusion of "SMASHVILLE" as the primary logo is meant as a tribute to Predators' fans, who coined that nickname for their team.
Tampa Bay's jersey is one of the better offerings in recent memory. Featuring the slick white and blue color scheme the Lightning are known for and accented by the grey that was found in the team's inaugural uniforms, the jersey represents the team that will wear it perfectly by bursting with personality and flair.
Fans can pre-order their jerseys by visiting the NHL's website.
