    The Blackhawks will never deviate from what they have, so you can sleep well at night.

    Yeh, those are laser perforated holes. As someone else pointed out, you can see the discoloration around where they are singed. You can probably put a pencil or pen tip in them.... ( just the tip) Should be same for regular season as well. Also those are woven patches, it's very tight and very fine - that's whey they're so smooth + The silver metallic thread

    MIC do not have screen printed patches, for any team.

    No it shouldn't vary, the six teams who decided to go with perf #'s should all be consistent. They are all made by the same vendor, they are then ordered and shipped to the official team crester. If they are printed then the equipment manager and/or crester has gone and sourced the numbers himself form someone without the laser cutting capabilities. EPS does Vegas and Ottawa, they are perforated.

    Can you post some high-res pics of the numbers please. Although the numbers themselves should be a one-layer sublimated twill, the holes should be laser cut perforations. The shoulder patches are woven patches, not screen-print. They may look cheap, but actually cost more to produce and provide better clarity especially on fine detail like the CBJ shoulder logos.

    Speaking to Blackhawks specifically, the on-ice cresting and patches are different than the retail. They are the only team that does this because of cost. The Chief Blackhawk front crest costs $20. They are the same as what was used on Reebok MIC. There's only one domestic supplier who can create the chainstitch to the level of quality the team demands. Again, read my comments above. Not all teams switched to the lighter woven patches on the shoulders. Also, most front crests stayed the same from Reebok. Those that did change, only swapped certain areas of twill for the lighter weight material that looks like the jersey fabric.

    Digital 6 jerseys are for NHL19 only. Bruins Winter Classic are being unveiled this comingThursday at 10am. I would think Chicago will be same day or soon after.

    It's a double edge sword with the woven patches. They actually cost more to develop and produce better results in clarity for fine detail like typography but they don't have the weight and perceived value that a twill & embroidered patch does.

    Can anyone confirm or clarify that the shoulder patches of the Adidas retail are made of different material then the Reebok Edge authentics? Is this one of the new weight reducing tactics? Yes and No depending on the team. The Adidas authentics use the same exact patch found on the MIC per team. So if the team uses a woven patch like Vegas (the new lighter weight patches) they get that. if the team uses a traditional twill & embroidered patch like the Stars or Hawks, they get that. Same goes for chest logos, same exact patch. Teams who carried forward the same patch execution from the Reebok days will be the same as Edge MIC and Indos. Second part of the question is, does the shoulder patch material differ from retail and Canadian made adidas? Is this just something on some retail jerseys. Same cresting and patches are used on MIC and retail. See above. If anyone remembers my question about the Ottawa patches, I got my hands on the Canes third and the patches are made of the same thin flexible fabric like material as the Ottawa Indo adidas. They are not the same patches as Canadian made Reebok’s but neither are they the same as the Reebok Premiers. Your examples are two teams who opted to go the go with the lighter weight woven patches. Reebok Premiers were all screenprinted twill.

    Nothing has changed. Still the same front and back, still curved.
