Gary Bettman Breaks A Tradition That Was Put In Place 34 Years Ago

In a surprising move, the NHL has relocated the iconic Stanley Cup patches on jerseys. Previously positioned on the right shoulder for 34 years, the patches have now been shifted to the left side, where team leadership letters typically reside.

This alteration disrupts a longstanding tradition dating back to 1989, and possibly even to the league's inception in 1917. The change, driven by Commissioner Gary Bettman, aims to generate additional revenue by incorporating sponsor patches on jerseys.


However, this decision has sparked discontent among traditionalist hockey fans, who believe it undermines the sport's history and heritage.
