It’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane and examine some of the amazing jerseys from the past.
Earlier today, the Toronto Maple Leafs revealed an old school sweater that they will rock on December 19th in honour of the 100th anniversary since their first game.
A few decades after the Arenas sweaters were donned, other squads also rocked unique jerseys that make some of the ones in today’s NHL pale in comparison. With that in mind, we took a look at some of the nicest tarps from the 1930’s and asked our Instagram followers which one they would like to see come back. Take a look.
There’s a lot to take in here. For starters, did anyone even realize that Pittsburgh’s team was once named the Pirates? The organization was founded in 1925 but evolved into the Philadelphia Quakers in 1930. The Pirates included Hall of Famers Lionel Conacher, Frank Frerickson, Mickey MacKay and Roy Worters.
Montreal also had its share of cool jerseys, while the Falcons and Blackhawks striped patterns are pretty neat, too. But perhaps none are prettier than the USA-themed New York American sweaters.

The NHL eliminated the third jersey, but that rule likely won't last forever. So which one would you like to see brought back the most in the future?
