In collaboration with adidas and the NHL's first league-wide alternate jersey program, the New Jersey Devils have today unveiled their adidas Reverse Retro jersey, reflecting a reverse of the team's 1982-92 uniform. The team's first-ever green-based jersey reflects the famed Pine Barrens, legendary home of the Garden State's mythical New Jersey Devil for which the team was named in 1982 following relocation and name change from the Colorado Rockies.
The Devils adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey will go on sale on December 1 at adidas.com, adidas.ca, NHLShop.com and NHLShop.ca.
"The Devils have been New Jersey's team for almost four decades. Since 1992, through three Stanley Cup Championships, the team's uniform colors, look and feel have remained consistently red, black and white. The adidas Reverse Retro ADIZERO Authentic jersey program created the opportunity for our organization to step back in time in a playful way, accentuating the Pine Barrens-inspired green that plays a significant role in our team history," said New Jersey Devils Senior Vice President of Marketing, Jillian Frechette. "In the coming months, we look forward to bringing the storied first decade of our franchise to life through storytelling, unique immersive experiences, and fan-centric promotions tied to this jersey and the games in which we will wear it."
