Nine NHL teams have a black jersey as part of their uniform collection. Those nine teams may want to reconsider.
According to a new study brought to our attention by this NPR report, teams that wear black uniforms are penalized "significantly more" than teams in white or other-colored jerseys. The study analyzed 50,000 NHL games across a nearly 25-year span and found that teams wearing black uniforms were penalized about two minutes more per game on average.
I found this pretty interesting.
