Las Vegas–Tonight the NHL along with Adidas’s Hockey Division unveiled their first generation of the “ADIZERO” sweaters to hockey fans, members of the media, and special guests at Intrigue Nightclub at The Wynn Las Vegas.
The main event headliner for this event was of course the Vegas Golden Knights who begin play this fall in the Pacific Division.
For the NHL and Adidas, they embark on a new 7-year partnership thru the new Adizero lineup.
NHL Stars like Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron and Edmonton Oilers Captain Conner McDavid were on hand for this event at Intrigue Nightclub along with San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns who is up for the Norris Trophy tomorrow at the NHL Awards and Calgary Flames Captain Mark Giordano.
Also, there was former Dallas Stars netminder Marty Turco and NHL Legends Denis Potvin (4-time Stanley Cup Winner) and Luc Robitaille (3-time Cup Winner).
These Adizero sweaters are much better than the Reebok sweaters that the NHL has been donning since the 2007-2017 seasons. They are more streamlined in designed and the Golden Knights players will enjoy playing in them. These “ADIZERO” sweaters are much lighter that the Reebok Era jerseys.
The Vegas Golden Knights, they were not alone in this main event as they also provided their 30 counterparts a warm welcome to their hometown for the first time.
Below is the sweaters by division from Adidas Hockey. Fans from all around the league are going to love these sporting these beauties around town, at school, work, and most importantly at home and away for their respective clubs.
They will also enjoy wearing them when they travel as well.
Fans who weren’t able to attend the jersey unveiling party at Intrigue Nightclub were treated with the opportunity to take a photo of themselves with the Golden Knights sweater at the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign on the south end of the strip.
Another item that was unveiled today was the official NHL Entry Draft hats by Adidas.
All home sweaters that every NHL player will be donning during the next 100 years of the league.
