Arizona Coyotes

a.k.a. Phoenix Coyotes (1996-2014)


Phoenix Coyotes

1996-98
The two shoulder patches are not the same. The one on the right shoulder reads PHOENIX COYOTES; the one on the left shoulder reads GOALS FOR KIDS -- the team's charity that carried over to Phoenix from Winnipeg.


1998-99
The Coyotes introduce a new green alternate jersey, complete with a desertscape at the bottom and at the sleeve ends.


1999-2003
The crest on the alternate jersey gains a sand outline. Starting with the 2001-02 season, the left shoulder patch changes to the team's regular alternate logo, reading PHOENIX COYOTES instead of GOALS FOR KIDS.


2003-07
The Coyotes redesign their uniforms just in time for their move into Jobing.com arena. Their new uniform set features considerably fewer colors than its predecessor -- brick red, sand, black and white. Hunter green, sienna and purple are retired.


2007-08
The Coyotes make a couple minor changes with the new Reebok Edge uniform system. The tail stripes are eliminated, the coyote head is tilted slightly counterclockwise, and the white jersey gains a brick red shoulder yoke.


2008-14
The Coyotes introduce a black alternate, featuring a crest of a full-body coyote.


Arizona Coyotes

2014-15
When the team changed its name to the Arizona Coyotes, the only change they made was to the shoulder patch, changing the PHX at the bottom to AZ. Also, the team retired their alternate uniform.


2015-17
Under the darkest cloud of uncertainty hovering over the franchise, the Coyotes introduce new uniforms for the 2015-16 season, featuring black more prominently than their monochrome predecessors.


2017-18
With elements of the Adidas Adizero system already included in their previous uniforms, the only notable change when Adidas took over from Reebok was in the collar treatment.


2018-20
The Coyotes bring back their original Kachina-style black jerseys (albeit Adidas-ified) as their new alternates.


2021
For the team's 25th season in Arizona, the Coyotes make their throwback Kachina uniform their full-time home uniform, with their brick red uniforms worn only two times, both on the road. Also for the silver anniversary, the numbers on the Kachina jerseys are now trimmed in silver instead of brick red.


2021-22
The Coyotes become the latest team to complete the return to its original look, reinstating their white Kachina uniform as their new road uniform. In the process, they correct a pair of embarrassing manufacturing errors on their crest -- the odd black accent stripe atop the coyote's right sleeve stripe and the sand orange skate blade. The brick red uniform stuck around, being worn eight times in 2021-22.


2022-present
Just as they get settled into a 5,000-seat college rink after being evicted from what was then known as Gila River Arena, the Coyotes introduce a new "Desert Night" alternate uniform designed by Rhuigi Villase´┐Żor, the founder of streetwear brand Rhude. It combines the simple color palette that the team employed from 2003-15 with modern touches, including an outline of the Kachina pattern of their original/current jerseys. Not pictured: The captain patch is the team's half-moon logo which forms the letter "C," and the alternate patch is of what looks like two cacti kissing, forming the letter "A."


Special Event Uniforms

2015-17 Heritage Uniform
For three seasons, the Coyotes would wear their original black Kachina-style uniform on one or two occasions. It would re-enter the team's regular uniform rotation starting in 2018-19.


2021 Reverse Retro
The Coyotes' first-ever alternate uniform is the basis of their Reverse Retro uniform, with purple replacing green in the main body of the jersey and socks.


2022-23 Reverse Retro
The Coyotes recolor their 2021 Reverse Retro jersey for 2022-23, going with a desert sienna base this time.
