On Wednesday, all of the sudden the New Jersey Devils amongst the other teams in the National Hockey League decided to post videos teasing round two of their Reverse Retro sweaters. That began the speculation on what it might look like for New Jersey’s team.

The idea of these sweaters is that they take an old jersey and reverse the primary color with the secondary color.

You might remember the first round of the Reverse Retro jerseys that the New Jersey Devils had. They were green sweaters with red trim, the flip of their old school jerseys from the 1980s. It was a really nice look.

Outside of the green catalog, the Devils don’t really have a long history of jerseys as they have mostly been the same since they arrived in 1982. However, the franchise existed before it came to New Jersey when they were the Colorado Rockies and Kansas City Scouts.

The New Jersey Devils have officially announced their new Reverse Retro jerseys.

In this year’s edition of the jersey announced on Thursday, they decided to flip the colors of the Rockies. It is a white sweater that has red, yellow, and blue stripes on the shoulders and arms.

The numbers and Devil’s logo is red with blue trim around them. It is a very interesting look for a modern-day NHL team.

Seeing the Devils embrace their pre-1982 history is really cool as they haven’t done it much on the ice over the years. Those teams laid the groundwork for the team that moved to New Jersey all those years later. Now, we enjoy the Devils where they are as a result.

There were leaks of this for weeks but it is officially out from the team and will make its on-ice debut during this season. It will certainly be cool to see kids like Jack Hughes, Nico Hischier, and Jesper Bratt skating around in these as the Rockies were defunct when their parents were kids.

New Jersey is one of the most boring teams in the league’s history when it comes to sweater innovation. However, over the last few years, they have been getting more creative and bringing new ideas to the table.

Running out there with a Colorado Rockies Reverse Retro is another great example of that. We can only hope that they bring them good luck on the ice and they get some big wins while wearing them. If that is the case, this announcement will be a major success.
