The 20 Best Jerseys You’ve Never Seen

In the NHL, teams are forced to work exclusively with Reebok in designing and manufacturing their jerseys. Most teams do not vary their jersey design with any great frequency. Some are timeless classics like the Blackhawks or Red Wings, others are more average that just don’t change.

In the CHL, teams also work alongside Reebok in designing jerseys. However, teams are much more active in redesigning new jerseys for their team. Maybe the CHL is easier to work with in that regard, or teams do it to capitalize on the new demand created by new sweaters.

Whatever the reason, the result is that some of the coolest looking jerseys in all of hockey reside in the WHL, OHL, and QMJHL. They’re bolder than NHL jerseys, and in many cases, much cooler looking. For my money, WHL jerseys as a whole are the best, but each league has some incredible sweaters.

Here are the best each league has to offer, with a special bonus at the end:
