1st: 1980-94 Home & Away, 2021-Present Home & Away Calgary Flames Jersey
The current versions of the Calgary Flames home and away jerseys are the best uniforms the club has ever worn. While removing black entirely from the set was a tough pill to swallow, these are too clean, too classic, too timeless, and too outright gorgeous not to hold the top spot on the Calgary Flames jersey history podium for me.
The Flames current look represents what the team wore upon their arrival in Calgary, it matches their 1989 Stanley Cup Championship attire, and fans league-wide agree that the Calgary Flames have the best home uniform in the NHL:
Perhaps my favourite part about the Calgary Flames current uniform set – above their simplicity and everything else I mentioned – is the fact the white roads and red homes are equally visually pleasing. Typically, teams’ away jerseys are overly white and bland, but the Flames away uniform – with red shoulder yokes, pants, and gloves – strike a harmonized balance of hockey beauty that no team in the NHL can compete with.
The Calgary Flames wear the definition of “hockey sweaters” and fans are fortunate to be blessed with such elite style points.
