The New Jersey Devils have released several new jerseys this season, including the very controversial “Jersey” jersey. Which ones came out best?

What the New Jersey Devils wear has been as much of a talking point this season as anything. The Devils introduced a black alternate jersey for the first time, and to say the reaction was mixed is being nice. At first, the reaction was entirely negative. Seeing the jersey sitting on a hanger with just the logo in the front seemed like a mistake. The traditional Devils crest that we all know and love was missing.

However, this isn’t the only new Devils jersey we’ve seen this season. Between the black alternate and the special pregame warmup jerseys, there have been five new jersey designs released this season. So naturally, we are going to rank them from top to bottom for our favorites.

We’ll start by saying we love the fact the Devils take the time to represent underrepresented communities in hockey. Using the pregame jersey might seem like a small gesture, but it really helps to show some of us really are pushing to make hockey for everyone. We aren’t there yet, but nights like “Pride Night” and “Hispanic Heritage Night” help normalize the sport for anyone and everyone.

And now that we’ve seen all the jerseys on the ice and in action, we don’t have any of them. They are all quite good, yes even the “Jersey” jersey. Seeing that one on the ice a few times really changed the perspective. We still hate the crest, though.
