Commissioner Gary Bettman said yesterday that the NHL will introduce a new, streamlined uniform next season that will blend fashion with function.
Bettman said the new-look uniforms, designed over the past 2 years, will be unveiled at the All-Star Game in January.
In an interview with Reuters at the NHL's headquarters in New York, Bettman said the players who have tested it so far "have been thrilled."
While the new tapered uniforms are fashionable, Bettman said they were designed with players in mind.
Here's some footage of the new uniform design in action.
