A one-of-a-kind gathering of some of the greatest players in NHL history is deserving of a one-of-a-kind blazer.

When the final 67 of the 100 Greatest NHL Players presented by Molson Canadian are revealed during the "NHL100 presented by GEICO" at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Friday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports), the honorees will be wearing custom-crafted John Varvatos blazers from the designer's modern Made to Measure program.

Each blazer will feature the NHL Centennial logo and will have the honoree's name sewn inside.

The final 67 players, who played predominantly from 1967 to the present, will be announced Friday. The first 33 players, the majority of whom played between the League's founding in 1917 and 1966, were announced at the 2017 Scotiabank NHL Centennial Classic on Jan. 1.

"NHL100 presented by GEICO" will be hosted by actor Jon Hamm and feature special appearances by John Legend, Robin Thicke and John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting.
