This morning, USA Hockey shared the jerseys their teams will be wearing in PyeongChang.
Three jerseys were unveiled for the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games – a white “home” jersey, a blue “away” jersey and an old royal “third” jersey.

According to the release, “Nike’s development team incorporated an upgraded lightweight and breathable ripstop material as the basis for each jersey, incorporating more mesh (for example, in the collar) to increase ventilation in the jerseys.”
Jersey details, as shared in the press release:
• The inspirational slogan of Land of the Free – Home of the Brave hidden in the back neck of the jersey
• Injected silicone molds make the trim pop
• Graphic on the sleeve was inspired by bald eagle feathers and represents the theme of fluid force
• The flicker film (rather than heavy twill) base for the crest and numbers increase vibrancy and sparkles under arena lights.
