NHL to have new uniforms next season; to be unveiled in mid-January

The league is set to unveil new uniforms at a news conference in mid-January. The streamlined uniforms, designed by Reebok, will be worn by players at the Jan. 24 all-star game in Dallas. All players will wear the new uniforms starting next season. They feature increased flexibility and are less bulky than what players have traditionally worn for years.

"The new uniform design has been in development for more than three full years," Bernadette Mansur, senior vice-president of communications for the NHL, said Thursday. "The system will afford the players increased protection and facilitate peak performance on the ice."

The launch is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 17 in New York although details are still being formalized. Another news conference featuring the new uniforms will take place Jan. 22 in Dallas during the all-star week festivities.

The league and Reebok have been working with NHL players behind the scenes testing the new uniforms.
