The next time you see Devils goaltender Henrik Lundqvist on a TV screen, he’ll probably be wearing a red and white striped sweater with the phrase “The Next Best Thing for a New-Look Devils.”
It’s a reference to Lundqvists first NHL sweater, which was introduced in 1996 as part of the New York Islanders’ inaugural sweater design.
But as we’ve noted in the past, Lundqvista’s first NHL hat was white.
The New York Rangers are currently the only team with an alternate jersey featuring Lundqvistic’s name.
The team has been using the blue and white logo for the past five years, and is set to return to that design next season.
