2016 NHL All-Star Jerseys Glow in the Dark, Because Nashville
You've seen the #NHLAllStar jerseys but did you know they do this? Just like #Nashville at night they're all lit up! pic.twitter.com/9TsxBuNB5O— Reebok Hockey (@ReebokHockey) January 14, 2016
The NHL and Reebok have gone to massive lengths to make every thread on the All-Star Jerseys scream Nashville. You'd think that would lead to a more interesting jersey. (I kid, they aren't bad. Just dull.) Now we see the crest actually glows in the dark as an homage to Nashville's bustling night life. Unless they play the tournament in the dark, we likely won't see them past the 20 minutes of intros ahead of Sunday's game.
