The NHL did not institute a dress code for the playoffs, but the Columbus Blue Jackets chose to follow one anyway. And it turned out awesome.
The Blue Jackets arrived to practice on Monday in shorts and custom-made Let’s Play Bubble Hockey shirts. The tees were designed specifically for the Blue Jackets during the shutdown by Homage, a popular Columbus, Ohio-based company that creates vintage-style sports apparel.
Hockey Twitter immediately went nuts for the t-shirts and now it appears Homage is taking steps to make the shirts available for the general public.
