Our march toward the #1 all-time ugliest jersey continues here today. Though, seeing the ones that are coming in at 5th and 4th, I’m not sure what abomination managed to climb all the way to the top rung.

The one you knew had to fit in here somewhere….

#5 – The Flying V…neck

The concept is not, on it’s own, horrible: “hey, let’s work a V for Vancouver in there.” The execution, well….not so good.

Up next is a jersey I have no recollection of. I’m pretty sure someone just photoshopped a roller hockey jersey on Gretzky and called it a day. Buttt, it still earns a spot despite probably not being real. There’s just no way it can be.

Blech.

Up next is theScore’s latest installment of Face Paint. In this episode we bring to you Brent Johnson, back-up goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins. When he’s not occupying his time with punching Rick DiPietro in the face, apparently he enjoys himself some Led Zepplin.

Not the most crisp look, but still, very cool. Plus it has to be hard to keep pace with Jonas Hiller and Ray Emery.

  1. The Burger King jersey wasn’t even the worst one of the initial wave of 3rds! But I’m sure we’ll get to that.

    That said, I do admire how fellow Kings fans out in LA have managed to keep the Cult of the Burger King alive to this day, including arranging for one game a year when people wear them to the game. The individual elements of the jersey aren’t awful, but taken all together… yeesh.

    (Still, it was the return of purple to the Kings, albeit in gradient form)

  2. It looks like someone bought a big white practive uni, and designed it with their kids…..Ha, I dunno man, it ain’t pretty.

  3. I believe the actual meaning behind the “V” wasn’t actually for “Vancouver”, but for “Victory”.

  4. To think, there are 3 jerseys that are supposedly worse than those!
    Off the top of my head, the multi-striped Habs jerseys, original Coyotes 3rd jerseys, the older green Wild jerseys and the current burgundy ones aren’t much better.

    Ironically, JB’s former employer, Puck Daddy ranked the current Wild jerseys as the BEST in the NHL a couple years ago. Not my favourite, that’s for sure.
