OK. So Icethetics has the goods on what the Stadium Series uniforms for the Sharks and Kings are expected to look like. I will be attending the game.
Last night, Mayor’s Manor had an early leak of the Kings’ set and Icethetics’ leak looks exactly the same. The only difference are the shorts. I think white looks better but the black makes so much more sense.
With that said, both uniforms are identical in terms of template and design. Let’s take a look at the Sharks’ first.
What I do like about it is the teal is prominent. Unlike the playoff run of wearing black, this special occasion warrants teal. Granted the bottom half of it is black but it works for me. This horrible design is screaming 1990s to me. It’s like a mismash of the old Stars and Avs jerseys. But this one is like a two-tone throwback. I think it’s a very nice and distinct look. I might even cop a replica of this.
For the Kings, their look is similar. There were rumors the Burger King or purple would return but that’s not the case. Much like the Sharks, the two-tone works and because the Kings are using silver, it really makes it look almost all white from a distance. I would love to see white pants for the contrast of the two teams but as of now with black, I like it.
I wish each uniform was unique but this is what was expected. It’s really an odd 1990s feel and I like it. It’s different and unique and don’t be surprised to see these appear again in a regular season game after the Stadium Series.
