3. Pride Night jerseys

The Devils have made it a tradition for Pride Night every year to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. It’s nice to celebrate love in all forms, and it really gives the Devils an option for creativity. Using the rainbow flag within the jersey could go haywire. The Devils have done well to avoid being too tacky or using too much of the rainbow flag. This season, they really hit the nail on the head with the use of the colors.

Let’s look at the jersey itself. Last year, the Devils just took the black warmup jerseys, and made the logo, lettering, and numbers in rainbow colors. This year, they did it much better.

The crest has the words “Hockey is for Everyone” written in different colors. It’s not just ironing on a rainbow flag on a Devils jersey. They really put time into this design. They also added rainbow piping around the numbers and letters on the back. This over a white jersey really ended up with a sharp design. There was a lot to love about this jersey design.

The Devils used the jerseys to raise money for multiple LGBTQ+ organizations, including Garden State Equality and You Can Play. Auctioning off these jerseys to help raise money for organizations shows it’s not just a money grab.
