The whale is staying.

That’s what it seems like, anyway, as the Canucks gave us a sneak peek at their new Adidas-made jerseys on Monday.

It looks… Exactly the same.

Adidas will take over from Reebok next season as official NHL jersey supplier, meaning all 31 teams will get new threads, even if that means no design changes.

The Canucks have a varied history of jerseys, so there’s no shortage of options for them to choose from.

Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net has reported that 12 teams will see changes to their uniforms, but did not list the Canucks as one of them.

Still, there are a number of potential changes we could see. Will there be changes to the striping? Will “Vancouver” continue to be prominently featured across the chest?

Given that the NHL is not allowing third jerseys next season, we know that keeping the orca means Vancouver’s stick in rink logo (with Johnny Canuck shoulder patches) alternate jersey is a thing of the past, at least for now.

The NHL will reveal all 31 new Adidas-made uniforms at a launch event in Las Vegas on June 20.
