Tuesday evening, Adidas, the new official outfitter of the NHL, will be launching the Vegas Golden Knights’ first official sweater, as well as new jerseys for the other 30 current teams.
This afternoon, the jerseys for the Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues, and Columbus Blue Jackets leaked prior to the official release.
The video for the Predators jersey was accidentally or intentionally posted on the NHL website, but removed soon after. The video was captured and shared via Reddit.
The Predators’ new jersey, seen side-by-side as posted by Yahoo Sports NHL, is drastically simpler than the previous style. Shaped and styled more like a practice jersey without a collar and piping, the jersey lacks the same personality it had before. Adidas did continue printing the piano keys inside the back neck area.
Well, since the Preds already put the video up of their new home jersey, here's some of the detail promo photos… pic.twitter.com/LMOa7I9v4o

The front of the Blues jersey looks almost identical, minus a slight color change. The stripes on the arms moved up a little higher to near the elbow, rather than the wrist.
The biggest change came on the back.
Rather than having yellow numbers with a white outline, the colors have been switched. The new jerseys show a primary white number to go along with the white-printed name.
The Blue Jackets did not change much on their jersey. Like other Adidas renditions, the shoulder graphics are higher up, rather than directly on the curve of the shoulder. I wouldn’t read too much into the blue difference until the physical versions are seen.
8:40pm Update: The rest of the jersey and hat designs were leaked.
