NHL Jersey Buying Guide

Do you find yourself asking, "What's the difference between a Premier NHL jersey and an Authentic NHL jersey?" When purchasing NHL jerseys, it's important to know exactly what type you're looking for. There are four types of jerseys to meet the needs of all fans. 

If you want the same jersey worn by the NHL players containing all of the high quality performance materials utilized in the pro cut, then a Reebok EDGE Authentic jersey is for you! 

If you're looking for a more casual jersey, yet still engineered and constructed to duplicate the look of the on-ice team designs then the Reebok NHL Premier jersey is an excellent option. 

If you're just looking for a simple jersey to show your team pride, then the NHL Practice jersey may be your best choice. 

Finally, if you prefer the traditional designs and logos of your favorite team then the Classic Replica may be what you're looking for.  Each type of jersey shows you're a true fan and the chart below is designed to help you choose the one that's best for you.
