Yesterday the NHL and Adidas released the Reverse Retro jerseys for 2022-23. The Lightning’s came out with a surprise twist on the blue Storm Jerseys. These ones are white with a silver trim over the shoulder with the classic jagged numbers, yellow bolts, and choppy waves still featured.

You can see the Lightning’s photoshoot with the players going full 90s here.

Season ticket members will get first dibs on the jerseys, with them going on general sale in “mid-November”.

And finally, here is the schedule of games where we’ll see these jerseys in action. Five Thursday nights between November and January with one Saturday night game in the middle.

There were some really interesting RR jerseys from other teams, but I wanted to point out the Flyers pants and the Coyotes face as two of my favourites. Nashville and Vancouver have a pretty good ones, too. If you want, give me your top five in the comments.

And finally, some reading on how the Lightning might be able to turn around their season. It continues tonight against rival Florida.
