The Colorado Avalanche revealed their new-look Rbk EDGE uniforms at a press conference this morning. Avalanche defenseman John-Michael Liles modeled the new Avalanche uniform for members of the media. The Avalanche will wear the new uniforms this season.
Alongside Liles were Head Coach Joel Quenneville, forward Milan Hejduk and former defenseman Curtis Leschyshyn, each modeling a previous edition of an NHL jersey worn during Colorado’s hockey history (photo attached).
“From a performance standpoint players will definitely notice an improvement,” said Avalanche defenseman John-Michael Liles. “In the later stages of a game, especially, the uniforms will help keep players fresh and they’ll notice that the lighter material will make a difference.”
Personally I don't like the look, the piping down the middle seems to accentuate the players midsection and makes them look like a dough boy and takes the focus off the logo. I like the way the "old" jersey accentuated and made the logo look more pronounced. Looks like Reebok EDGE Template 2, no stripes or colors to offset the bottom of the jersey, nice job Reebok.
