NHL teams originally only had one uniform for a season. The NHL made a change in 1955 and required teams to wear white jerseys on the road and colors at home. In 1970 the rule was reversed and teams would wear white at home. The decision was again reversed in 2003 and the current format is still in place with teams wearing white on the road. Here is your chance to own an authentic Reebok Connor McDavid away jersey with blue lettering and numbers. At the age of 16, some scouts had already projected Connor to be the first overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft. McDavid wears No.97 to represent his birth year of 1997, which was inspired by his favorite hockey player Sidney Crosby, who wears No. 87 for his birth year. Connor McDavid has inked his signature in silver paint pen on the middle section of the #9 on the back of the jersey. McDavid’s signature was witnessed under UDA’s Five Step Authentication Process.
