LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Today, Vegas Golden Knights and Adidas unveiled an all-new red Reverse Retro jersey. The jersey will be added to the current rotation and will be worn periodically throughout the season.
The team says the retro jersey was inspired by the pioneers of hockey in the desert.
The new red jersey pays homage to the teams and players that called the desert home before the Golden Knights.
The red is for the Wranglers, who played in Vegas from 2003-2014.
While the striping is inspired by the Thunder, who wore the V for Vegas body stripes from 1993 until 1999.
The year ’95 appears in the back neck to commemorate the Thunder’s best season in 1995-1996 and Manon Rheaume, the first woman to play in the NHL, who wore the Thunder’s V-stripes during the 1994-95 season.
Fans can preorder the VGK Reverse Retro jersey online at vegasteamstore.com or in-person at The Arsenal at City National Arena or at The Armory at T-Mobile Arena.
