It’s no secret that I dislike the color baby blue (powder blue) for hockey jerseys, BUT there’s one possible monkey in the wrench: The Quebec Nordiques.
I’ve never considered the Nords jersey to be baby blue, but it’s close. However, looking for examples online is a bit difficult. There are many different shades of blue for the Nordiques jersey. Which is correct?
I don’t know my Nordiques uniform history, so it’s possible that they have played with different shades of blue over the years.
If you look at these images side by side, one thing stands out: The Penguins jersey is DEFINITELY baby blue. The Nords? Maybe not.
What do you think? Would you classify the Nords jersey as baby blue?
