UPDATED – PREVIEW: Kings – Ducks Stadium Series jerseys

Besides the weather, once of the most talked about elements related to the upcoming Kings-Ducks game at Dodger Stadium surrounds the jerseys each team will be wearing. For the last few months, we’ve been tweeting out information as it was confirmed to us by multiple sources. Back in September came word that the Kings wouldn’t be using any purple in their jersey – dashing the hopes of those wishing they’d wear their 1967 Forum Blue and Gold sweaters. Around the same time, it became apparent the Ducks would be using orange as their primary color.

Things became a little squirrely from there, but eventually the NHL announced each team participating in the Stadium Series would be using a crest from their new ‘chrome logo’ collection.

Although the official unveiling of the Kings and Ducks jerseys won’t take place until next Tuesday, with the help of artist Justin Cox, here’s the latest thinking, using all known information…

There has also been some discussion about how the teams may use a new shoulder patch, as well…

And here’s what that may look like when added to the jerseys…

As mentioned above, the final jerseys will be announced this coming Tuesday.

Until then, here’s two other bits of related information:

– For those who enjoy the Kings’ vintage purple/gold, that will continue to be used next season for the Legends Nights. Additionally, that sweater is expected to eventually become the team’s full-time third jersey.

– If you don’t plan on attending the game at Dodger Stadium, you will have one more opportunity to see the Kings play in their Stadium Series jersey live. As we reported back in September, team officials have confirmed they’ll wear it for a game at Staples Center in the second half of the season. The exact game date is still TBD.  April 12th.

[UPDATE - Tuesday, December 3, 2013]

Here are the official jerseys…

  1. Good job covering an otherwise boring topic. John…..you do good my man. Too bad the Kings have some lame fool designing or approving the jerseys. Since when is grey a color?

    How about the management get off it’s dead brains (re: butts) and make a move for some nice looking hockey sweaters? Since when are black or white a color? As I recall colors (primary ones) are blue, red & yellow. Oh yeah, there’s more after you mix in one or more primary colors but that’s another story.

    I hang around as a loyal fan and customer for all these years only to find some punk designed and approved these Raiders look-a-like sweaters?? Thanks Kings….for a job poorly done……AGAIN!!!
