The Dallas Stars introduced their ‘Blackout’ third jersey Tuesday, and will debut it on the ice this season. It will be the first time since 2006 they will enter a new season with three uniform options.
The Stars said the jersey is inspired by Dallas and designed for Texas, a return to their roots to re-establish the primary color worn during their first 20 years playing in the city. A new color, Skyline Green, is an ode to the downtown Dallas skyline.
“The jersey design committee was tasked with finding a way to incorporate the heart of the city of Dallas and the spirit of Texas into a uniform,” Stars president and CEO Brad Alberts said. “Today is an exciting day as we have worked hard over the last two years at creating a third jersey that will make our fan base proud, and with the help of adidas Hockey, we feel like the Blackout third jersey will do just that. The Dallas skyline is iconic and introducing Skyline Green into our uniforms is a vibrant reminder our great city.”
The State of Texas logo, displayed on the Stars pants since 2013-14, is on the crest of the jersey for the first time and the collar incorporates a stylized Texas flag. A lone star is featured on the upper left of the collar, and a Skyline Green and alternating Skyline Green and black hashed stripe wrap around it.
The third jersey will be built on the adidas adizero Authentic Jersey chassis, a light, strong substance popularized by players and fans the past three seasons.
“adidas is thrilled to have partnered with the Stars to create the new Blackout uniform system,” senior director adidas hockey and lacrosse Dan Near Sr. said. “Stars fans have been waiting a long time for a third jersey and we know the color innovation and design aesthetic will unite sports fans in the Metroplex around both the history and future of Stars Hockey.”
The jersey will be on-sale at The Hangar locations in Frisco and Victory Park at 9 a.m. CT on Thursday, as well as on HangarHockey.com.
