5th: 2022-23 Reverse Retro 2.0 Calgary Flames Jersey
The NHL/adidas Reverse Retro program returned last season for the second time. The idea with this uniform program was to create single-season alternate uniforms for every team in the league with certain elements “reversed” or altered in some way.
For the Flames, their second Reverse Retro uniform marked the return of the Pedestal. In my opinion, which I understand is counter to a lot of Flames fans’ opinions, these uniforms scratched an itch for me. The fact that they were intentionally 90s throwbacks versus an attempt to be modern, like the original Pedestals, just did it for me. The final kicker was the black base with the white Flaming C – it popped and I thought these jerseys looked phenomenal for their one season of action, especially on TV.
