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.”

This year, the Detroit Red Wings will wear the Gordie Howe #9 Memorial Patch on their jerseys to honour one of their most celebrated players, Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe. The commemorative “9” patch sits above the logo on the front of the Detroit Red Wings jersey on the left side of the chest.

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

how to wash hockey jersey

So you bought a new NHL jersey of your favorite player, congratulations! If you`re like us, you`ll want to keep it as pristine as the day you bought it, so 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 garments hang-tag for specific care instructions.

Tips for Washing Your Hockey Jersey:

  • Wash your NHL hockey jersey inside-out. Turning clothes inside out before laundering helps prevent brightly colored items from fading because of direct exposure to detergent. It also reduces the chance of buttons, zippers or other items in the wash from snagging on or rubbing against the jersey.
  • Use color-safe detergent. Color-safe detergents have less to no bleach compared to other detergents so your colors stay colorful. We’ve noticed that Woolite is a popular choice. It`s also important to wash it separately, to avoid the colors from other clothes running and damaging your jersey.
  • No fabric softener. The chemicals in fabric softeners can affect the texture of the garment, 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 it`s made for rough hockey play, you want it to stay as new as possible.
  • Let it hang dry or air-dry. You can also consider putting it onto a hanger. Hang jersey in a dry place after it is finished drying.

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!
