After the San Jose Sharks showed off their Stadium Series sweaters earlier this week, it was only a matter of time before their opponents, the Los Angeles Kings, did the same. And on Tuesday the defending Stanley Cup champs gave the world its first look at the team’s outdoor-game jersey.
It follows the same basic template as the Sharks’ unis: big, blocky colors; elongated numbering; the “carbon fiber finish” on the crest. Overall, LA’s kit is just as amplified as San Jose’s.
But there’s one piece that’s particularly in-your-face. Because of the blocky colors, the white on the bottom of the jersey carries directly into the team’s white pants to give the player an… odd look:
On one hand they look like astronauts; on the other, it looks like they’ll blend right into the ice. It’ll be a strange sight, watching these jerseys in action on February 12.
