This article is part two of a four part series here on Bleacher Report power ranking NHL uniforms. This series will cover past and present, best and worst, standard uniforms and alternates. For updates on when the following parts are published either check Robert’s writer profile or follow his Twitter feed here.
With the playoffs right around the corner and the matchups set, now seems like a time we all could use a deep breath before the plunge and have a little fun.
There is nothing more iconic about the NHL than the jerseys and uniforms each team wears on the ice. They are the most decorative and creative in all of North American team sports and have been nearly since the league’s inception in 1917 with only six teams. However, sometimes that "creativity" goes much, much too far.
As the second of a four part series on Bleacher Report, this article covers the 50 worst uniforms in NHL history. For all the good there is in the history of NHL sweaters, there is almost as much bad and each of these jerseys exemplifies that.
This is an opinion article. In the other parts of this series, each uniform either was or will be ranked out of 10 points in each of four categories.
However, in the spirit of fun, we decided to throw away the rankings and just have a good laugh at the failures. These 50 uniforms are in no particular order, but in the cases where a team has botched more than one, they are grouped by team.
Now, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
