1. Hockey Fights Cancer Night

The New Jersey Devils do a special “Hockey Fights Cancer Night” jersey every season, but this year they introduced a slightly new design, and it is sweet. The NHL as a whole has accepted lavender as the color to represent a special night across the NHL. Across the world, people who wear lavender ribbons are showing support for people with all cancers, so it makes sense the NHL would also use that color for its jerseys.

The black and lavender jerseys always look sharp, but it was something about the white and separate shades of purple this year that came out amazing. The way they added big lavender stripes around the numbers with a darker purple stripe underneath was awesome. Then, they added those same stripes at the bottom of the jersey.

There was a lot more on this night. Dougie Hamilton honored a little girl who lost her battle with bone cancer. The Devils honored two kids who are currently fighting cancer and are big Devils fans.

These jerseys are great. Honestly, we’d like to see them wear them once during an actual game. They usually make slight changes to the Hockey Fights Cancer Night jerseys every year, but we’re okay with them making this the full-time jersey moving forward.
