The Golden Knights will still wear their gray jerseys for a couple of select home games, and the chrome helmets are scheduled to make an appearance at least three times. Circa Sports will be the Golden Knights jersey sponsor for 22-23.

In early September, the Golden Knight’s home jerseys were ranked second-worst by NHL fans through JFresh Hockey. There have also been credible leaks to the Golden Knight’s second Reverse Retro jersey designs.

The San Jose Sharks revealed a new set of home and away uniforms on Wednesday.

The biggest change is the usage of teal pants and helmets for the home outfits. Previously, the Sharks have always worn black pants and helmets with their dark uniforms.

Also changing is the re-addition of a bottom stripe and the removal of any orange trim (outside of the stick in the logo).

The club is also using a modernized shark fin logo for the shoulder patches, similar to what the franchise donned on its original jerseys. Since 2007-08, San Jose’s shoulder patch logo on its primary uniforms has either been a full shark or the letters “SJ.”

Here’s a closer look at some of the details:

The Sharks started wearing their previous primary uniforms in 2013.

Love it or hate it, teal is back in the Motor City.

Detroit will wear a replica of the road uniforms the Pistons wore from 1996 – 2001 as their classic uniform this season.

“To Pistons fans everywhere – we heard you, and this is for you,” said Mike Zavodsky, Chief Business Officer for the Detroit Pistons. “The teal jerseys represent a ‘colorful’ time in Pistons basketball and NBA history. We are thrilled to re-introduce the teal to a new generation of basketball fans and can’t wait to see this version of Detroit Basketball suit up in them.”

These were truly “love them or hate them” uniforms, but they had a lot of love in Detroit. Detroit probably just sold a lot of jerseys.

The Dallas Cowboys are the latest NFL team to unveil an alternate helmet for the 2022 season.

Dallas announced Thursday it’ll wear its throwback helmets – the white helmet with a single navy star – along with the throwback classic uniforms during the team’s Thanksgiving Day game against the New York Giants on Nov. 24.

The white helmet will be paired with the classic navy jerseys with white sleeves and shoulders.

“We’re beyond excited to bring back our throwback white helmets this season,” Cowboys chief brand officer Charlotte Jones said in a statement. “The white helmet, along with the throwback uniforms honoring our teams from the 1960s, have long been a fan favorite, and we’re thrilled to bring back the tradition of wearing those helmets and uniforms on Thanksgiving Day once again.”

This will be the first time since 2012 that the Cowboys wear their throwback helmets on Thanksgiving. The NFL updated its policy last season to allow teams to wear an alternate color helmet during games. The league banned the use of a second helmet in 2013 over player safety concerns.

The Cowboys previously honored their original uniform in Thanksgiving games each year from 2004-12, wearing a version of the original white helmet with the navy and white jersey with navy stars on the shoulders.

Dallas hopes that the return of its throwback unis will bring luck to the Cowboys as they look to snap a three-game losing streak on Thanksgiving Day.

The New York Giants announced Wednesday that they’re bringing back their classic blue uniforms for a pair of legacy games this season.

New York will wear the throwback unis at home against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 2 and Washington Commanders on Dec. 4. The uniform includes the return of the navy helmet with a raised wordmark on the side, as well as the solid scarlet red stripe, classic numbers, and side decals.

The Giants originally wore those uniforms from 1980-99 and won two Super Bowl titles in that span. In the 1986-87 season, New York beat Washington in the NFC Championship Game before topping the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXI. The Giants then eliminated the Bears in the division round four years later en route to a narrow Super Bowl XXV victory over the Buffalo Bills.

“This era obviously still holds a special place in the hearts of Giants fans,” Giants president John Mara said in a statement. “Our teams during that time featured legendary players, some of the best in our franchise’s history. And these uniforms remind us of what was accomplished through those years. We are thrilled to wear that uniform again.”

New York also announced that its 2022 legacy games will include Super Bowl XXI throwback end zones.

The Utah Jazz unveiled brand-new designs for the franchise’s uniforms and home court on Friday.

Leading the charge is a retro purple jersey that showcases a similar color palette to the organization’s original outfit in 1974 when it was located in New Orleans.

“Purple is back and here to stay,” Jim Olson, president of the Utah Jazz, said in a statement. “This uniform collection features the return of our cornerstone color purple, which will be integral to our new designs in future Jazz seasons. Purple is beloved by our fan base and lives at the core of our identity.”

The team will also suit up in three alternate looks: two yellow-and-black sets and one white, yellow, and black uniform.

The home court at Vivint Arena will complement these changes with two designs, one for the main uniforms and one for the alternates.

The 2023 NBA All-Star Game will be held in Utah and the event’s logo will be featured on the court designs as well.

Five players from the Tampa Bay Rays chose not to support the LGBTQ+ community by wearing rainbow-colored hats and uniforms during the team’s Pride Night celebration at Tropicana Field on Saturday.

Pitchers Jason AdamJalen BeeksBrooks RaleyJeffrey Springs, and Ryan Thompson decided they wouldn’t wear the team’s alternate hat and also chose to peel off a rainbow-colored sunburst on the right sleeves of their uniforms.

Adam spoke on behalf of the players, explaining their decisions were “faith-based” and not meant to be “judgmental.”

“So it’s a hard decision. Because ultimately we all said what we want is them to know that all are welcome and loved here,” Adam said, according to Tampa Bay Times’ Marc Topkin.

“But when we put it on our bodies, I think a lot of guys decided that it’s just a lifestyle that maybe – not that they look down on anybody or think differently – it’s just that maybe we don’t want to encourage it if we believe in Jesus, who’s encouraged us to live a lifestyle that would abstain from that behavior, just like (Jesus) encourages me as a heterosexual male to abstain from sex outside of the confines of marriage. It’s no different.”

The Rays gave their players the choice of wearing the uniforms or not, although they would have preferred full participation, according to Topkin.

Kevin Kiermaier, the longest-serving member of the Rays, did wear the alternate hat and uniform on Saturday.

“It’s one of those things, my parents taught me to love everyone as they are, go live your life, whatever your preferences are, go be you,” Kiermaier said.

“I can’t speak for everyone who’s in here, obviously, but this is a family-friendly environment here at a big-league ball field. … We just want everyone to feel welcomed and included and cheer us on. No matter what your views on anything are.”

The Montreal Alouettes have unveiled new helmets, overhauling the look that was introduced in February 2019 featuring their new logo.

The logo has been moved from the top of the helmet to the side of the helmet and given a bold white outline. The top of the helmet now features a thick red stripe outlined in white.

The helmets will be worn for the first time on Saturday, May 28 in Hamilton against the Tiger-Cats. Alouettes fans will see them for the first time at home when Montreal hosts the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday, June 3 at Percival-Molson Memorial Stadium.

The NHL will reintroduce its “Reverse Retro” jersey series next season, according to The Athletic’s Sean Shapiro.

The uniforms will feature new designs rather than recirculate last season’s threads, Shapiro adds.

The NHL introduced the line of jerseys for the shortened 2020-21 campaign. It marked the first time the league had included every team for an alternate jersey rollout.

Each team’s “Reverse Retro” sweater was a play on a throwback jersey while including a modern twist. They were worn multiple times throughout the campaign.

There is no confirmed date for when the jerseys will be revealed.

The return of the USFL is fast approaching, and the league is finally starting to reveal some of the details surrounding its first season in nearly 40 years.

We already know who will be coaching each team. We know their designated locations as well, though all games will be played in Birmingham, Alabama, during the league’s first season. 

But now, we know one of the most important things that fans are going to be focused on ahead of the season: the uniforms.

The USFL is revealing the uniforms for each of its eight teams throughout the day on Thursday, Feb. 17. They began by revealing the Birmingham Stallions’ uniform at 8 a.m. ET and will finish the day by revealing the New Orleans Breakers’ uniform at 3 p.m. ET.

Each of the USFL’s teams had some history to work off, as the eight franchises were all a part of the league during the 1980s. But will their uniforms match the uniforms of old? It’s a question that many have been pondering ahead of the league’s late-April start date.

Below is a look at the uniforms for each of the USFL’s eight franchises for the 2022 season.

Birmingham Stallions uniforms

Pittsburgh Maulers uniforms

Tampa Bay Bandits uniforms

Houston Gamblers uniforms

New Jersey Generals uniforms

Michigan Panthers uniforms
