One of the most iconic franchises in all of professional sports, the Detroit Red Wings are part of the “Original 6” teams of the National Hockey League.
Having originally been founded in 1926, they were known initially as the “Detroit Cougars”; a subsequent name change saw them being known as the “Falcons” before the nickname that’s stuck since 1932 was introduced.
And this jersey concept we recently came across is a nod to Detroit’s original identity. From Eric Dunkel of Dunkel Designs:
Already with one of the classiest uniforms in the sport, this nod to their original identity would look incredible on the ice.
