The St. Louis Blues were one of several NHL teams to reveal a third jersey over the offseason and they decided to give it a bit of an old school twist. The team is kicking things back a few decades with their retro light(er) blue uniforms and backup goaltender Chad Johnson has already received a matching pair of pads for them. Earlier today, a photo of the tendy’s leg pillows were revealed and you’ll likely agree that they’re pretty stunning.
Fortunately Johnson hasn’t been the only netminder to reveal an old school set of pads. Just recently, Coyotes backup goaltender Darcy Kuemper showed off his unreal Kachina themed pieces of equipment.
As for their starting goaltender Antti Raanta? Turns out he’ll be rocking some pretty beautiful ones himself.
Now that’s a setup right there!
As the season progresses, look for other goaltender around the league to reveal new equipment that matches their third jersey.
