— CanadianHockeyLeague (@CHLHockey) September 3, 2019
The Canadian Hockey League officially unveiled their new CCM Quicklite jerseys for all 60 teams as we first reported would likely be happening in June. The jerseys are not drastically different in look for most teams but the jersey fabric “contains moisture-wicking properties with four-way stretch, softer hand feel, abrasion resistance, burst resistance, and breathability. The patented ergonomic arm fit is consistent with NHL designs, while the lightweight mixmedia crest techniques will increase mobility and speed as players are no longer impeded by the stiffness of full embroidery. Socks are also aligned with the jersey concept and include a new cut-resistant feature and QLT knit for a higher level of breathability” according to the CHL.
