The NHL All-Star Game jerseys are out, and despite the simple design, they have a classic feel to them with nods to the league’s centennial, as well as the Los Angeles Kings’ 50th anniversary.
Representing the Metropolitan, Atlantic, Central and Pacific divisions, the four different jerseys for each All-Star team — also inspired by previous All-Star games and Hollywood setting of the Jan. 29 game at the STAPLES Center in L.A. — include colors worn by the Kings throughout their history.
