Finding the fans’ favorite threads of the 2022-23 PHF season
A total of 37 different jerseys were worn during the 2022-23 Premier Hockey Federation season, showcasing the league’s unique style and brands in a variety of threads and specialty theme designs.
The 2022-23 PHF Sweater Series will decide the ultimate fan favorite with a tournament-style bracket that features daily head-to-head matchups with voting conducted on social media to determine winners.
The Sweater Series bracket will have two sides with one focusing on all 16 primary jerseys that most commonly represent team uniforms, and the opposite will be theme based with all 21 specialty jerseys worn throughout the year. There will be a short ‘play-in round’ with select specialty team jersey matchups to bring the total from 21 down to 16. After four full rounds, the top jersey on each side of the bracket will battle it out for bragging rights in a final championship round. Full schedule of matchups is below.
The 37 jerseys competing in the 2022-23 PHF Sweater Series include the league’s three All-Star designs for PHF Team Canada, Team USA, and Team World. The Boston Pride have five different jerseys including both their Black and Gold primary threads, plus their alternate, and specialty designs for Hockey Fights Cancer and Pride. The Buffalo Beauts wore six jerseys this season including both their Blue and White uniforms, Heritage design, plus specialty sweaters for Autism Acceptance, Hockey Fights Cancer, and Pride. The six Connecticut Whale jerseys include both their Blue and Green classics, new alternate, and specialty themes for Alzheimer’s Awareness, Pride, and the Pittsburgh Pennies. The Metropolitan Riveters have five jerseys in the bracket including their Blue and Red standard sweaters, and specialty threads like Black Rosie, Mental Health Awareness, and Pride. The Minnesota Whitecaps have six to choose from including a trio of base uniforms in Blue, Black, and White, plus their special Ugly Sweaters, Military Appreciation, and Pride. The Montreal Force have four in total with their Black, Maroon, and White combinations, plus a special Indigenous theme. The Toronto Six have their Black and Red standard sweaters.
