FRISCO, Texas – Dallas Stars President and CEO Brad Alberts today announced, in partnership with adidas Hockey, the unveiling of the Blackout third jersey, marking the first time since 2006 that the franchise will enter the season with three uniform options.

The Blackout alternate uniforms are a return to the team’s roots, re-establishing black as a primary jersey color. During the first 20 years in Dallas, the Stars used black as a base color in their jersey. They also feature the introduction of a bold new color in Skyline Green. Inspired by one of the most iconic skylines in the world, Skyline Green is synonymous with the city of Dallas.

“The jersey design committee was tasked with finding a way to incorporate the heart of the city of Dallas and the spirit of Texas into a uniform,” said Alberts. “Today is an exciting day as we have worked hard over the last two years at creating a third jersey that will make our fanbase proud, and with the help of adidas Hockey, we feel like the Blackout third jersey will do just that. The Dallas skyline is iconic and introducing Skyline Green into our uniforms is a vibrant reminder our great city.”

For the first time, the State of Texas mark will be used on the crest of the sweater. This logo has been used on the team’s pants since 2013-14. The third jersey will be built on the adidas adizero Authentic Jersey chassis, the lightest, strongest, and coolest NHL uniform to date that has been wildly popular among players and fans over the past three seasons.

“adidas is thrilled to have partnered with the Stars to create the new Blackout uniform system. Stars fans have been waiting a long time for a third jersey and we know the color innovation and design aesthetic will unite sports fans in the Metroplex around both the history and future of Stars Hockey.” said Dan Near, Sr. Director adidas Hockey & Lacrosse.

BLACKOUT JERSEY HIGHLIGHTS

–          Skyline Green: We are proud to present a bold new color into our jersey lineup, inspired by one of the most iconic skylines in the world, right here at home in Dallas.

–          Back In Black: During the first 20 years in Dallas, the Stars used black as a base color in the jersey. Our Blackout alternate uniform reintroduces the primary jersey color into the Stars jersey heritage.
–          State of Texas Crest: This jersey was designed for all who call Texas home, and those who take pride in hailing from our great state. The State of Texas mark adorns the jersey crest with perforations to mimic the bevel of the mark on which it is inspired, giving it depth and texture.
–          The Lone Star: The collar reinforces the pride of the Lone Star State. The outside of the collar incorporates a stylized Texas flag. A lone star is featured on the upper left of the collar, while a Skyline Green and alternating Skyline Green and black hashed stripe wrap around the collar.
–          Hangar Effect: Completing the Texas-theme, the inside of the collar is emblazoned with the ‘Come and Take It’ flag, replete with cannon and star in black on a Skyline Green field. The same design as the 1835 flag fashioned by settlers of Gonzales, Texas in the first military engagement of the Texas Revolution.
–          Stripes: The striping pattern on the sleeves and hem take on the new Skyline Green color while staying true to the traditional home jersey pattern.
–          Numbers: The numbers take on a stealth appearance, primarily black with a Skyline Green outline. The numbers are also perforated to mimic a beveled look, revealing more Skyline Green beneath.
–          Helmet: The Stars primary logo that has been used since 2013 is replaced with the ‘Dallas Stars’ wordmark for the first time in Skyline Green.
–          Pants: To complete the overall look, the side striping and State of Texas crest on the leg have been eliminated in a minimalist approach to focus all attention on the new jersey.
–          Gloves: All black gloves were added to complete the overall look with custom stitching in Skyline Green.

    I believe Stevie Wonder & Ronnie Milsap both said “What an Ugly jersey!!”
    NHL needs to get ahold of it’s self when it comes to 3rd jersey/blackout program,of the four I’ve seen wouldn’t pay a cent for any of them!!

    If jerseys glow in dark,could still be useful to those who make trip to bathroom in the middle of the night,you won’t need to turn lights on to find your way,truly would make it an environmentally “Green” choice.
