November 16, 2020

Ladies and gentleman of hockey, the day has finally come. After months of rumors and teases, snippets and glimpses, Adidas has officially unveiled its Reverse Retro jerseys for all 31 NHL franchises.

So grab that Visa and get in the queue, because we’re here to help you decide not only what you’re buying, but who you’re buying it for. Sorry kiddo, that PS5 will just have to wait.
