The Twenty Worst NHL Uniforms of All Time

Updated: Sep 28, 2019

There have been many great NHL jerseys over the years, but there have also been some terrible ones. Right now, we rank the ones that fall into the second category.

20. Columbus Blue Jackets:

What is that logo? And what is that alternate logo on the sleeve? Both are god awful, and this jersey has no stripes on the arms, there is no color on the shoulders, who would ever buy this?

19. New York Islanders:

Can you really blame John Tavares for leaving New York after having to wear a jersey like this? Numbers on the front of a jersey are for basketball and football, not hockey. There is something missing on this jersey, and that is a logo.

18. Edmonton Oilers:

The logo is just horrible. The jerseys are very bland, but it is the logo that makes this one stand out.

17. Anaheim Ducks:

You've just got to love the color scheme here. Purple and black, and then some more purple. And also, just writing the name of your team does not count as a logo. This is just so ugly.

16. Buffalo Sabres:

This jersey needed a photo without a player to show the fact that it is half yellow and half blue. It looks like the Sabres needed a third uniform, so just decided to use their practice jersey.

15. Atlanta Thrashers:

I will give credit where credit is due, and that is to the Thrashers, because they had guts. The color scheme is kind of nice, but the design does not work. They need a logo, and the design on the socks is trash.

14. Vancouver Canucks:

Yeah, no. A fade does not belong on a hockey jersey. Vancouver tried to get creative, but this jersey is a disaster.

13. Ottawa Senators:

Many teams in the NHL have nicknames, the Habs, the Pens, the Caps, etc. That does not mean that they get to put them on their jersey. This was a really poor choice.

12. Dallas Stars:

I think that the person designing this uniform was just randomly picking the colors. Red! Gold! Green! And the bull, constellation, shooting star logo is one of the worst that I have ever seen.

11. Pittsburgh Penguins:

This is quite the jersey. Notice that the sleeves are different on each side. They match the stripe through the center of the jersey. The Penguins have a great color scheme to work with, but the problem with this uniform is just that it is really, really, ugly.
