The Florida Panthers revealed their new uniforms for the 2016-17 NHL season today. The team has had relatively the same logo and uniforms since they entered the NHL in 1993. This is the first major change they have made.
“We really wanted to establish our own identity,” says Panthers Vice Chairman Doug Cifu. “We’re going to win multiple championships and this is the logo and the brand that’s going to do it.”
Florida is coming off one of their most successful seasons, as they set the record for most regular season wins in 2015-16 with 47.
The uniform has two particular features that you normally don’t see on most hockey jerseys today.
First of all, we’ve never really seen a crest logo quite like this in the NHL. Secondly, there are stripes across the middle of the jersey; currently, the only other jerseys that have this are the Montreal Canadiens home uniforms, and the Ottawa Senators alternate jerseys.
What do you think? Stanley C. Panther loves them.
