6. Friends: The One With George Stephanopoulos – New York Rangers Jersey

Joey Tribbiani has shown his love for the Rangers on multiple occasions on the show, however, this one is our favorite. Thanks to Ross for being hit in the face with a puck during play, this episode had us howling.

Classic films with classic jerseys, what more could you want? These jerseys were worn by arguably the greatest team to ever be assembled.

4. Seinfeld: The Face Painter Martin Brodeur Devils Jersey

David Puddy is a Devils fan in case you didn’t get that from the clip. This scene is too funny to not be on our list. Plus it’s a great jersey with a great player on the back and was worn in a great show!

We’re not sure what we like better; the movie itself or the story behind why Cameron Frye wears his Howe jersey throughout the film!

2. National Lampoons: Christmas Vacation – Chicago Blackhawks Griswold Jersey

Clark Griswold wore his hawks jersey with pride during the holiday season. With his choice to have the jersey bear his own name and number, the 00 Hawks jersey will always remind us of Clark.

Happy somehow made golf entertaining to watch with his antics on and off the course. He wasn’t the greatest hockey player, but loved the game and incorporated it as much as he could into his golf play. His iconic Bruins jersey will always be associated with him and his legendary capturing of the coveted Gold Jacket.

The 2016-17 is a big year for the LA Kings; they celebrate 50 years of playing in the NHL and they will be hosting the LA All-Star Weekend at the end of January. The Kings were selected in 1966 to be included in the expansion from the original six.

“We wanted to pay homage to our past and our heritage with the use of the original Kings crown, but at the same time celebrating the importance that our current logo means to our franchise and fans,” said Jonathan Lowe, Kings Senior Vice President of Marketing. “The gold tone is of course the traditional way to celebrate a 50th Anniversary and we hope our fans love the logo as much as we do and we are going to be rolling out a number of exciting usages around the logo.”

Gordie Howe is one of Detroit’s most decorated players. He played for the team for over 25 seasons and helped them win the Stanley Cup four times. He was consistently a high scorer and many of his recorders were only broken by Wayne Gretzky in the 80s. Howe is also known for his longevity in the sports having played in the league for over 5 decades.

How to Wash Your NHL Hockey Jersey

When it comes to washing your hockey jerseys, you probably look a little like this guy. Follow our guide to keep your jerseys looking pristine!

Your jerseys can cost a lot of money and you’ll want to do as much as possible to protect them. Here are a few tips to keep your NHL jersey in mint condition. These tips apply to jerseys that have casual wear and no food stains before washing, if you have a nasty stain it`s always best to consult the jersey hang-tag for more specific instructions.

how to wash hockey jersey

Tips for Washing Your Hockey Jersey:
  • Wash your jerseys by themselves. Firstly, it’s important to wash your jerseys by themselves or with other jerseys of the same colors to avoid the colors from other clothes running and causing discoloration.
  • Wash your jersey inside-out. Turning the jersey inside-out before washing will help prevent fading from direct contact with detergent. It also reduces the chance of items in the wash from snagging on or rubbing against the jersey.
  • Use color-safe detergent. Color-safe detergents have little or no bleach in them, ensuring your team’s colors will stay as your team’s colors. We’ve noticed that Woolite is a popular choice.
  • No fabric softener. The chemicals in fabric softeners can affect the texture of the jersey, and change the look. Avoid these if possible.
  • Use a gentle cycle and cold water. Set your washing machine to the delicate cycle, even though your jersey is made for rough hockey play, you want it to stay as new as possible.
  • Let it hang dry or air-dry. Don’t throw your jersey in the dryer, instead hang it to dry. This will prevent the jersey from suffering significant damage in the dryer. We’ve seen crests peel and jerseys even melt from use with dryers, so your best bet is to stay away. If for some reason you really need to dry your jersey in the dryer use the lowest heat setting possible.

We`re pretty sure this won`t be your last hockey jersey, but take care of it like it`s your only one and you`ll be glad you did … who knows, it might be the start of a serious hockey jersey collection!
