Hockey Sweater Obsessives, Your Ship Has Arrived

Paul Lukas of Uni Watch fame has published his NHL preview, chock full of hockey uniform photos from new sweaters, to memorial patches, to the sneaky “C” that Roberto Luongo added to his mask since by NHL rules no goaltender may wear the captaincy “C” on his jersey. So if you’re into the details of hockey uniforms, check out his article here and geek out to the hockey-gear minutia.

    Why can’t a goaltender wear the Captain’s “C”?

  4. @ Joy: It’s an old-time hockey rule, actually in the rule book. I believe its origins are since the “C” means that player is designated as the team’s representative ‚Äî i.e. he can talk to the refs to demand explanation of a call or to argue ‚Äî the NHL decided that goalies shouldn’t be the ones to do that since nobody wants the goalie skating to center ice each time there’s a questionable call. But that’s just my $0.02.
