Ugly Sweater Week’s Day 6 Match-Ups
In the coming days, we’ll show you a holiday tradition we’d love the NHL to start enacting: in the 7 days before the NHL takes their 3-day Christmas break, every team wears its most historically ugliest jersey in their games, creating a truly festive and horrific display on the ice.
By ‘ugliest’, we mean the jerseys that are a combination of being dreadful by (a) being more ostensibly garish rather than poorly designed, (b) by the jerseys that’s generally accepted as being the team’s ugliest jersey outside of our opinion, and (c) our opinion. It includes the jersey collection of the entire franchise (i.e. – including jerseys prior to relocating to its current location) and consideration will be given to (mostly) ensure the home teams are in coloured jerseys and the road teams in white.
Tonight’s match-ups for December 22 could look something like this:
Minnesota at NY Rangers
It’s the Cuff-To-Cuff Bowl, with the original Wild white jerseys against the 1976-78 Rangers jerseys, which just looks strange with their actual logo on there instead of the diagonal letters.
Winnipeg at Vancouver
It’s ’80s night in Vancouver! The cuff-to-cuff Jets jerseys take on the Flying Vs.
