New York Americans

a.k.a. Brooklyn Americans (1941-42)


New York Americans

1925-26
New York's original NHL franchise took to the Madison Square Garden ice wearing (appropriately) patriotic uniforms.


1926-27
Color placement slightly changed, and the team experimented with putting players' last names on the backs of the jerseys. The latter was a flop with fans, and the practice was shelved for the next four decades.


1927-30
The names were removed.


1930-32
Among other changes, the most significant one was making "Americans" the prominent part of the jersey, relegating "New York" to one of the margins.


1932-33
The sock stripes changed.


1933-35
An all-white jersey is introduced as an alternate.


1935-36
The white jersey undergoes a redesign, and the pants are now blue in color.


1936-37
The stripes on the pants change color.


1937-38
The top of the socks changes from blue to red.


1938-39
The patriotic red/white/blue jerseys are retired.


1939-40
The stripes are widened, and a new crest adorns the front of the jersey. The crest now features the letters "A," "N," "H" and "C" in a pattern so that the crest reads "An Americans H(ockey) C(lub)."


1940-41
The crest and stripes on the existing jersey are changed, and for some games, the team wears jerseys with the letter "A" on the front.


Brooklyn Americans

1941-42
The front of the jersey changes to reflect the team's new monicker (although named Brooklyn, the Americans still played their home games at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan). The left sleeve features a patch of the American and what was then the Canadian flag.
