The jerseys, which can currently be pre-ordered at both Hockey Lodge locations, will be available for purchase exclusively at Hockey Lodge stores on Friday, September 14. Wild players will also be modeling the new jerseys at the Mall of America East Rotunda on Saturday, Sept. 15 as part of the “State of Hockey Celebration,” which will also include the Rbk EDGE uniform display, detailing the science behind and evolution of the NHL’s new jersey system.
The jerseys are part of the Rbk EDGE Uniform System that is being implemented this season throughout the NHL. Featuring technologically-advanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable, more resistant to water absorption and offer greater range of movement, the NHL and Rbk designed a uniform that better complements today’s game. More than two years of extensive research, development and testing were performed with player feedback integral to the process – from direct on-ice product testing to feedback in the dressing rooms at team practice sessions.
Reebok and the NHL consulted some of the top scientific minds in the country to perform independent tests to validate the performance features of the Rbk EDGE Uniform System. Wind tunnel testing conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) confirmed a nine percent reduction in drag, enabling a player to move faster on the ice. Central Michigan University’s thermal regulation studies authenticated the effectiveness of the Rbk EDGE Uniform’s core temperature management system, resulting in a cooler and drier player.
