REPORT: NHL All-Star Jersey Leak, Sweaters To Feature Mid-90s Logos
The 2023 NHL All-Star Weekend is less than a month today, and the All-Star Game jerseys appear to be a blast from the past.
It looks like the 2023 NHL All-Star Game is going retro, as the jerseys have reportedly leaked and appear to pay homage to the mid-90s.
Per Icethetics, a leak has emerged with a white sweater featuring the 1994-97 "Western Conference" logo as the main crest, with pink and white accents. It looks like there will be two jerseys this year for each conference instead of four for each division. The other sweater is expected to be the "Eastern Conference" logo and based on artwork that had been posted on the online NHL Shop, it looks like those jerseys will be black.
Both will reportedly feature aqua and pink accents, a hat tip to "Miami Vice," as FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida, is playing host to the 2023 NHL All-Star Skills Competition and 3-on-3 tournament between the four divisions.
Here's one leak that was posted on Twitter:

And then there was a leak of what the Western Conference sweater may be, per Icethetics:
All-Star Weekend will be from Feb. 3-4. Alex Ovechkin will represent the Washington Capitals and be on the Metropolitan Division team, and he plans to attend after missing last year's due to COVID-19. Darcy Kuemper, Dylan Strome and Evgeny Kuznetsov are also gaining steam in the fan vote on Twitte
"Back then, like first time, it was another dream come true, you know?" Ovechkin explained. "You wanna be part of that, you wanna feel the atmosphere, you want to feel how to be in the All-Star Game. And obviously, it’s pretty fun moment.
"When you get selected, it's a special moment. It means the league appreciates [you], fans appreciate [you] and it's fun," he added.
