For the first time since they burst onto the ice in 1993, the Florida Panthers had a new look last season.

The team changed its logo, the tint of its primary colors and made a drastic change to its uniforms.

That look will continue into the foreseeable future.

As the NHL moves to Adidas as its uniform provider, Chris Creamer’s Sportslogos.net reports 12 teams will be “making changes to their uniform.”

The Panthers are one of those teams.

According to sources within the organization, the changes aren’t anything major — basically the team’s new logo crest will be larger than it was on last year’s edition.

Although some had speculated the Panthers would have the large stripes on the front of their sweater wrap around to the back of the jersey, that is not the case.

One other change is minor as well; an Adidas logo will replace the Reebok one on the back.

The new jerseys will be unveiled at the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago later this month.
