All the talk over the last few days has been about the Los Angeles Kings retiring their Purple and Black jerseys. Since the Kings are paying tribute to these jerseys during rare back -to-back home games against the Phoenix Coyotes, we here at The Royal Half didn't want to let the opportunity pass by to talk about the Coyotes' own uniform changes for next season. That's right, via a Royal Half Tipster™... we have obtained some initial designer concepts that we believe the Phoenix Coyotes are seriously considering for their uniform change next season. Let's take a look.
 
CONCEPT #1
 
 
 
After a few years of black jerseys being all the rage in the NHL, it's refreshing to see Phoenix take a cue from the past by re-introducing green back into the NHL color scheme. The Minnesota North Stars and Hartford Whalers' green jerseys have been quite coveted by fans over the past few years... so it would be great to see the hockey franchise in Phoenix end up in the exact same situation as the North Stars and Whalers!
 
CONCEPT #2
 
 
What's nice about Concept #2 is that it really pays tribute to the Phoenix Coyotes long 16-year history of being a part of the US Southwest. These baby blue jerseys are a big risk for sure... probably the biggest risk the Coyotes have made since building an arena in the most hockey-unfriendly part of Phoenix. But when it comes to betting big... sometimes it's the only way the Coyotes know how to be!
 
CONCEPT #3
 
 
 
 
Let's be honest... it's no secret that the Phoenix Coyotes have struggled to attract fans to their home games. So there would be no better way for the Coyotes to increase attendance than by appealing to Canadian fans! Both the logos and jerseys in Concept 3 would be very attractive to Canadian fans that have long been unable to see the game of hockey in person
 
 
No matter which jersey and logo design the Phoenix Coyotes decide to switch to for next season, I'm sure that with their totally stable ownership group... the right decision will be made! So what do you think of the possible Phoenix Coyotes new jerseys? Let us know in the comments!
