The Dallas Stars should take note of Adam Henrique’s hockey jersey tweet.
Anaheim Ducks forward Adam Henrique has never been shy about displaying his positive and fun personality over Twitter.
The Ducks’ center recently informed fans that he’s also a vintage hockey jersey collector in addition to producing on the score sheet for Anaheim.
Henrique, 28, tweeted out a photo on Tuesday of two new jersey purchases that were also signed by some of his favorite NHL skaters that he looked up to as a youngster during the 1990s.
The Stars jersey that’s pictured was first introduced as an alternate by Dallas in 1997-98, but was converted to the team’s primary road jersey once the 1999 Stanley Cup Playoffs rolled around.
The Stars original Dallas jerseys were then retired after the team won its first Stanley Cup that spring against the Buffalo Sabres.
However, did Adman Henrique just hint at the Stars that the team should reintroduce the jerseys as a potential alternate sweater or a special-night themed throwback to wear once in a while?
More and more teams around the league have been reintroducing vintage or epic 1990s jerseys to wear as third jerseys.
“The star-themed” Dallas jersey is a classic and considering that the Canucks are reintroducing the “flying skate” sweater, which is pictured above, as an alternate in 2019-20, Dallas needs to highly consider bringing this gem back.
Yes, the Stars’ current sweaters are some of the best in the league and a black consistent-themed jersey would also be awesome, but teams can never go wrong with wearing an old-school sweater.
The reality is that if the Canucks can wear those, well, unique jerseys, then Dallas can definitely pull the trigger and take to the ice with the “star-themed” sweaters next season too.
