100 Greatest NHL® Uniforms

Detroit Red Wings



In 1961-1962 the Detroit Red Wings changed the color of their sleeves from white to red. A small change sure, but it became the club’s signature look going forward. Following this change the Red Wings would only slightly tweak their uniforms, moving the single waist stripe around and swapping the colors on the logo a few times for a season or two in the 1980s. Otherwise, the uniform stayed the same, worn by the team for their four Stanley Cup championships between 1997 and 2008.
