LIVE FROM THE NHL DRAFT: Preds runner Nik debuts new jersey…

JERSEY - side BANNER

The Nashville Predators debuted their new sweater at the 2011 NHL Draft in St. Paul, Minnesota this weekend. But they didn’t debut it on a player.

Only first round picks take the stage at the draft so, since they didn’t have one, a kid from Highland Park, Minnesota named Nik became the most famous runner in history by being the first person to don the new jersey.

Whomever the Predators pick first this weekend will have the honor of being the first player to don the new sweater.

Below are our pics of Nik with the new road white threads.

    I thought I saw this on the TV broadcast last night, but nice to see the closeup shots. I think I’m getting one of these. Kind of anxious about the home jerseys, but at least we’ll stand out now!

    Sorry,these new designs say nothing to me other than lets once again dilute the iconic look and feel of the original Predators.I just don’t understand why each year for several years,now,they have to go and mess with the teams look.Does anyone remember Boston,Chicago,Detroit,Toronto,or any number of other teams trying their best to dilute and destroy any semblance of continuity in their logo?All i see is a cheap attempt to get more money out of gullible fans for the “new” look which in 12 months will be changed AGAIN.

    I completely agree with Mike J. I’m getting tired of these cheap changes every year. NOt to mention,I think the new jersey is hideously ugly. It looks like something from 1991 not 2011.

    and a while back i saw a post from someone on here showing nearly the same style…

    Could this be the new home sweater? I hope not!

    If someone has photo shop and some extra time, take that mustard sweater and reverse the colors and see what it looks like… Blue base over mustard base would be much better…
