That answer is actually a video game; NHL 97 to be exact. It was Christmas of 1996 when my brothers and I got the first generation PlayStation with NHL 97 as one of our first games. Unlike the prior consols, the players on NHL 97 were more detailed, it had an actually commentator, and other things that really took it to another level.
I played that game constantly because I wanted to see all the logos and jerseys. The designs of the 90's were unique and complimented the logos that the teams used. From that point on I was in love with everything logos and uniforms.
To honor this, I'm going to give my top 5 favorites from the 96-97 season. Also, I want you guys to to share your early memories of your love for hockey logos and hockey jerseys in the comments section.
5. St. Louis Blues
4. Hartford Whalers
3. All-Star Game Jerseys
2. Pittsburgh Penguins
1. Anaheim Mighty Ducks
Since Caz has left, I will take over this Sunday. It was a pleasure to write with you Caz and I hope I can do a good job of trying to distract others from the inevitability that is Sunday as you have.
Have a good rest of the week everyone.
