Welcome, make yourself at home. This is the Ice Hockey Sweater Blog, The Past, Present and Future of Hockey Uniforms. As the name states, this page will deal with hockey uniforms from past to the present. I have been inspired to undertake this blog mainly because of Paul Lukas and Uni Watch, which I have been reading for a year and a half now. I plan to post in this blog once a week. I have a few things that will be regular columns, such as my favorite uniforms and discussing some of my personal jerseys that I own. But if there is a development of some sort that must be addressed, I will turn to that.
Today I will just leave you with a picture of one of the best college hockey players in the nation, Ryan Jones. I was able to see this guy play this weekend over at the Northeast Regional for the NCAA Hockey Championships. A couple things to check out in the photo. One the Nike logo creep. I count five swooshes on the young man. Second the shoulder number on the jersey, which I thought only happened in the NHL. Third, check out that swweeeet flow. At his press conference I worked at someone asked him about his hair. He said he was growing it locks of love after he met a little girl with cancer. He is a great kid, but boy can he just destroy people with big hits on the ice. And finally look at his cage, I am not even sure it is snapped shut the whole time he is on the ice.
