On Sunday morning, the Hockey News revealed the jerseys for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, which will take place in Pyeongchang, South Korea. 13 countries will participate in the event: the United States, Canada, Slovenia, Slovakia, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, Germany, Russia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, and Norway.
Sweden’s jerseys look relatively the same with the Tre Kronor symbol in the center.
Norway’s jerseys are pretty nice with stripes in the middle of the sleeve and the Viking ship under their logo.
Finland took off the letters of their team’s jerseys and the blue looks nice. Relatively no changes to these threads.
The Czech Republic’s jersey has a nice shade of red to it. The blue and the white takes some of the attention away from the red to make these look better.
Russia’s new threads have too much red. The gold eagle in the center still never gets old. Too bad they will not have Evgeny Kuznetsov and his bird celly.
Though I love the sleeves and the bright colors, this looks too much like a soccer jersey. And don’t even get me started about the center of the jersey.
Not too bad, Canada has kept its maple leaf at the center as it has in the past. Not a fan of the shade of red they used in the first jersey though.
Same problem with Germany’s jersey but worse. This jersey is arguably the most boring of any team’s in the tournament. The white is too dark as well.
Korea is hosting the tournament and will do so in these jerseys. Not a fan.
Switzerland’s jerseys are pretty nice. The white in the sleeve really makes the red pop out more.
Slovakia’s jerseys are pretty nice. Love the red and white in the sleeve.
Like these jerseys. The green really blends in with the blue.
Finally, the red, white, and blue. The first jersey is a bit too dark, but these third threads look nice.
The 2018 Winter Olympics begin on Friday, February 9 and end on Sunday, February 25. Unfortunately, we will not see any NHL players rocking these threads as they will not be allowed to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
