Brent Hall continues his series of city-inspired alternate uniforms for NHL clubs. But he ran into a problem with the Devils. He writes:
Cannot ruin a classic. So I flipped the colors using the green color scheme. “Incorporated 1982” is based off the Newark flag where it says “Incorporated 1836” on a banner—obviously using the Devils
first year in the league.
Interestingly, Brent may have stumbled upon a possible look for the Devils’ fourth jersey coming in 2020-21, in which teams may be pairing an inverted color strategy with classic sweaters. In other words, it’s possible we see this jersey or something like it on the ice next fall—as freaky as that may seem.
