All NHL Jerseys Need A Middle Stripe
The Montreal Canadiens have (almost) always had one.
The 2009 Winter Classic jerseys for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks added one.
So did the Calgary Flames with their 2011 Heritage Classic uniform (although the arm stripes were a little over the top).
And you know what? The center stripe simply looks better, especially the way the new Reebok jerseys dont have a squared off bottom.
The center stripe highlights the logo and just adds a pop to the uni. One of my favourite design blogs, Icethetics, has many pages of jersey re-imaginations and often the center stripe motif comes up.
I’d like to see more NHL teams step up to the idea.
