The 3rd jersey is a great alternative when the standard home or road jersey starts to fade in novelty and is also a great marketing tool to promote diversification and tradition as the reason why certain 3rd jerseys are made is to bring their historical colours back to life. Of course the 3rd jerseys are brought in to try and make a los-angeles-kings-third-jersey-rbk.jpgLosAngeles-Kings-Premier-Away-Jersey.jpg

The predecessor to the current LA Kings. These jerseys were retired in 2011 to make way the new and improved ‘back in black’ sweaters

So do you think it’s an improvement? Management sure thought so and now we begin the count down of my top 5 best looking NHL 3rd jerseys. All of these jersey were picked based on originality, visual stimulus and/or resemblance of the past and culture. Enjoy!!

1. St. Louis Blues Alternate Jersey

The St. Louis Blues alternate jersey was number 1 on my list because the circle badge with the Blues logo inside it adds character and establishment plus in the background of the crest is the famous ‘Gateway Arch’ which is the worlds tallest arch and is the pride in architectural structure in St. Louis, Missouri.

I think the black jerseys are a vast improvement for the Kings, I particularly didn't like the huge crown crest..I'm also wondering if it's a bit of a 'spin-off' of the LA Raiders black & silver unis? The crest is even slightly similar in shape. I'm definitely not a fan of the Sen's alternate jersey with the big 'O', but I think your #1 pick is also my fave, I almost like it even more than the Blue's home jersey, really like that blue & the yellow is a nice contrast. The crest is very classic looking, with the note & the arch. I would almost make it a tie with the Nucks' alternate jersey with the 'stick in the rink' logo, nice vintage. Nice post!

Thank you for your input and I respect your opinion. Of course this is just my opinion on the top jerseys and everyone is going to have different views. I do understand your distaste with the Ottawa jersey. I gave that particular jersey points for resemblance on the original Ottawa Senators jersey when the NHL was first established in the 1900's. That was my reason for the #4 pick and I know there are better jerseys so that's why it wasn't the top of the list.

Ah, thanks for that, I didn't know they resembled the original Sens' jerseys. Then that definitely gets points based on the nostalgic vintage theme...kudos to you for that!  :)
