NHL All-Star Game 2015 jerseys: 'Elite green' for hockey's elite players

It's not neon.

The NHL All-Stars will be sporting some bright green and black jerseys when they hit the ice for the 2015 All-Star Game on Sunday night.

The jerseys are black and white with "elite green" trim, as the NHL is calling it.

Here's the "home" jersey that Team Foligno will wear.

And here's the "away" jersey that Team Toews will wear.

Someone high within the NHL ranks clearly thinks that neon green is still bold and hip. Reebok says it designed the jerseys with a fresh idea in mind.

"This was a fresher spin and a color that is unique," lead NHL Reebok designer Dominic Fillion said. "No other team owns this color so that was unique and it complemented very well the black and white while bringing a great accent with high visibility. We wanted something energetic and bright enough that it would stand out and grab your attention.

"We wanted something that fans hadn't seen on an NHL uniform before."
