It all started when the league announced last week that all players in the NHL would wear a black jersey and that the new uniforms would feature black on-ice logos.
The idea was to keep the uniforms simple, with a uniform design that would be simple to understand, said Arniviz.
“I think the jerseys have been well received, and that’s not a surprise,” Arnivtz said.
So this is just a great way to bring attention to the sport and the league in a different way.””
As fans of the game, it was nice to see some players wear these colors and to see a new logo for a new team.”
So this is just a great way to bring attention to the sport and the league in a different way.
“The move is a first for the NHL.
The league has never worn black on a regular basis.
Black on- ice logos are not a new concept.
The NFL’s new logo features a black helmet, white helmet and white gloves.
The logo for the NBA has been a black and white version of a logo with a blue “X.”
