adidas worked closely with the NHL® and each team to design a Reverse Retro jersey representing unique and historical moments in each club's history, while refreshing the colour and design combination for an all-new presentation.
Originally red, Vancouver's Gradient Orca Jersey debuted during the 2001.02 season. The Canucks team was coming off its first playoff appearance in five seasons and the fanbase had just had its first glimpse at a couple of young future stars, Daniel and Henrik Sedin. The jersey was also featured during one of the most exciting eras in team history when the West Coast Express was taking the League by storm.
Fast forward roughly 20 years, and the team is again in a very similar position having finally returned to the playoffs, led once again by a new era of Canucks hockey, and the young stars of the future.
This jersey represents a turning point, a visual depiction of transition, from green to blue, from one era of Canucks hockey to the next and the start of a young emerging team with a bright future.
Each NHL team will wear the adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey in multiple games during the 2020.21 NHL® season with special head-to-head matchups featuring exciting and renewed rivalries - both old and new.
