The New York Islanders®, the National Hockey League (NHL®), and adidas unveiled today the new adidas adizero Authentic NHL third jerseys for the team's 2018-2019 season.
In collaboration with adidas, the New York Islanders joined with Adjective & Co. to create a third jersey that celebrates the Islanders' storied tradition while embracing an exciting future.
Creating a new signature look, the alternate jersey features a re-designed "NY" crest, modernized to be more symmetrical. The descending "Y" hockey stick has been shortened and strengthened to give it a more balanced appearance. The four iconic stripes have been moved down to the blade to prominently celebrate the Islanders' historic consecutive Stanley Cup® Championships. The jersey includes subtle nods to the team's heritage with a color palette, refined striping system, and orange numbering reminiscent of the team's inaugural 1972-1973 blue sweater. Other subtle details include a graphic of Long Island on the interior neckline, a designation of Long Island pride, and a block-lettered "ISLANDERS" moniker that sits just above the adidas logo on the exterior neckline.
