The NHL is about to get a facelift with regards to its uniforms, with some changes expected to come to the Calgary Flames jerseys.

Adidas takes over as the official jersey supplier for next season, meaning that all 31 NHL teams will get new threads. For some, it may mean no design changes at all.

The Flames are expected to be one of the teams that will see changes, with Chris Creamer of reporting that the Flames are one of 12 teams that will see their uniform altered.

The Flames, along with a number of other teams tweeted out a teaser of what their new uniforms will look like, using the hashtag #FormTheFuture.

The above snapshot looks a lot like the current home uniform worn by the Flames. While the yellow looks little sharper than on the current uniform, the rest appears to be the same.

There could be many more changes of course, including striping and other design possibilities. Will the Canadian and Albertan flags stay on as shoulder patches? We’ll soon find out.

What was revealed on Monday is that the team’s popular retro look is a thing of the past, for now anyway.

NHL teams will not be permitted to have third jerseys in 2017-18, meaning every team will need to choose a home and away jersey. The black flaming C design indicates the Flames have chosen a more modern look, at least at home.

The NHL will reveal the new uniforms at a special event in Las Vegas on June 20.
