After weeks of anticipation and speculation, the first set of NHL Stadium Series uniforms has finally leaked! The jerseys the New York Islanders will wear outdoors at Yankee Stadium are the first to surface. If you’ll notice, the jersey features a new “NY” crest on the front decked out in chrome. We’re hoping the other teams participating in the NHL Stadium Series will wear Throwback jerseys instead of the chrome design. Let us know what you think and be sure to check back as more jerseys leak for the Stadium Series.
The New York Islanders began playing their last season on Long Island in 2013-14. Next season the team moves to Brooklyn and will become the Brooklyn Islanders. Taking a page out of the New Jersey Nets book, the team packed up and will be sharing the Barclay’s Center with the Brooklyn Nets. Unlike the Nets, they won’t be completely ditching their blue/orange uniforms however, the Islanders will infact be adopting a black/white alternate jersey paying homage to the Nets and Brooklyn. No images have been leaked yet but you know we’ll be one of the first sites to post them when they do! Stay with Rare Vintage Wear for updates.
