The last iteration of the NHL’s “reverse retro” uniforms were such a success that they brought it back this year. Avs fans bought the Quebec Nordiques-inspired uniforms in droves, setting expectations sky-high for Adidas’ new designs this year. The wait is over, as the Colorado Avalanche and the rest of the NHL released them this morning.

The lighting in that video has confused a few Avalanche fans as the sleeves look green to some, but the still shots demonstrate that the color scheme is the familiar blue, yellow and red from the Colorado state flag.
