Why we think the jersey number will be the one for this year’s jersey design

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will unveil the league’s next jersey number at a news conference Wednesday morning, and the numbers will be set at a design that has already been unveiled by other leagues.

The numbers for the new uniform will be unveiled at a press conference later this morning, which Bettman said will begin at 9 a.m.


The numbers will have an estimated retail value of about $1 billion, according to ESPN.

The NHL’s new uniform design, which was unveiled last month, has already had an impact on other professional sports leagues.
