The National Hockey League unveiled the 2024 All-Star game jerseys this evening, following an apparent leak.

Shortly thereafter, the NHL sent a press release confirming that these are, in fact, the jerseys which will be worn at this year’s All-Star Game. The game will be taking place at 3:00PM on February 3, 2024. As in previous games, four squads comprised of 11 players (nine skaters and two goaltenders) will compete in the annual NHL All-Star Game.
The jerseys were designed in collaboration with drew house, the fashion brand co-founded by global superstar Justin Bieber.
According to the NHL, “The 2024 NHL All-Star jersey collection distinctively features four versions of the jersey (one for each All-Star team) in vibrant colors – blue, red, yellow, and white. The collection brings a culturally-relevant streetwear collaboration to the NHL All-Star Game while respecting the invaluable tradition of each individual NHL team through the incorporation of a team shoulder patch.”
Here are a couple additional looks at the jerseys:
The jersey features the NHL Shield and the design has bubble letters and enlarged dimensions. The crest is one of the largest ever to adorn an NHL jersey at 22 inches high and spans the full width of the sweater, according to the NHL.
“After the tremendous success of our first NHL, adidas and drew house collaboration for the Maple Leafs’ Next Gen jerseys, we have looked forward to another opportunity to bring a bold, fashion forward look to NHL jerseys,” said Brian Jennings, NHL Chief Brand Officer and Senior Executive Vice President. “The All-Star Weekend in Toronto is the perfect setting for a fresh perspective on the All-Star jersey. The vibrant colors in this year’s All-Star collection are both youthful and classic and offer the perfect complement to the young NHL talent set to meet in Toronto for this year’s NHL All-Star Weekend.”
While I’ll need to see these on the ice (and with breezers and socks) to render a full judgment, I rather like them. The ASG is an exhibition, and while I loved some of the more traditional and classic ASG looks…
…including some more recent classic designs…
…these appear to be miles better than some of the most recent offerings.
I guess we’ll know for sure how successful (and how good they actually look) when we see the full uniforms — hopefully before they’re worn in the ASG on Saturday, February 3.
