CHN Puck Links: When will more Avs Reverse Retro Jerseys be here?



Reverse Retro Avalanche

A LOT of people keep asking: when can we expect to be able to buy Avs Reverse Retro jerseys again? The answer: probably not until May at the earliest.

The NHL is the entity that is responsible for the ordering and production of the jerseys, and from what I have gathered, the league/Avs/Altitude/Adidas/all other outlets/ have sold out of their original order of 7,500 Avs Reverse Retro jerseys. There are more ordered, but it takes time to get them from factories overseas to North American shores. May is the target date to have more for actual purchase, but it may not be until Fall of 2021 before an “oversupply” can be a reality.

Some puck links for a Tuesday:

  • Best wishes to longtime New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist as he readies to undergo serious heart surgery, per his announcement on social media on Monday. King Henrik was planning to play this 2021 season with the Washington Capitals after a long, Hall of Fame-level career stopping pucks for the Rangers but announced in the last few weeks that he’d be forced to sit out while dealing with a newly discovered heart condition.

King Henrik said he needs aortic valve replacement, aortic root and ascending aortic replacement in an open-heart surgery, and that sounds pretty significant to this medical layman.

I ordered a custom RR jersey within the first hour of orders opening and I still haven’t received mine yet.

[…] limits on how many times certain jerseys can be worn on the ice during the season, because the Reverse Retro sweaters the Avs are sporting are — for lack of a more suitable word: […]

Absolutely no excuse for a major corporation to not have these jerseys in stock yet. I tried ordering a retro Nordiques jersey since the 1st day and it sold out immediately that day before I could order. Haven’t had an opportunity to buy one since. There is no excuse for that for a corporation that makes so much money on merch on these teams. Do better NHL.
