Adidas, NHL Unveil All-Star Game Jerseys Made From Repurposed Material

Adidas and the National Hockey League officially unveiled this year's All-Star jerseys on Wednesday, and this year's look brings a significant shakeup from what we've seen over the past few years.

No, the ink didn't run out on the NHL's printers.

Those jerseys will be nearly entirely black and white with the exception of some slate striping.

The jerseys, created by adidas in conjunction with Parley Ocean Plastic, are made with re-purposed plastic debris from the ocean.

Still, these jerseys don't exactly inspire much excitement.

NHL All-Star Weekend will be hosted by the San Jose Sharks this season, taking place January 26 and 27.

The NHL is bringing the shape of water to the 2019 All-Star Weekend.

Inspired by the colors of the game - crisp white, like a fresh sheet ice and contrasting black, like a brand-new puck - the environmentally-conscious uniforms create an instantly classic aesthetic that pays homage to tools of the game.

They will also feature team logos on the chest rather than the traditional league or conference logos, which is a first in NHL All-Star Game history. While the black and white jerseys may not seem all that special, it's the design process that sets these All-Star unis apart from the others. Signifying an authentic jersey and symbolizing eco-innovation in the movement to protect the oceans, the Parley logo is featured inside the back of the collar.

For the All-Star tournament - played in a three-on-three format featuring four teams representing the league's four divisions - the home team will wear black and the away team will be in white, while each player will wear the crest of his respective team. $220 CAD each at adidas.com, adidas.CA, NHLShop.com, NHLShop.ca and NHL team stores.
