The NHL gave us heavy dose of special Stadium Series jerseys last season, consistently infused with a shiny chrome treatment over the logos.

According to a leaked photo posted on the website Icethetics, the chrome takeover continues. The key detail missing: we don’t yet know what this jersey will be used for. If it’s a practice jersey – and it sure looks like one – it’s pretty darned cool. The black and white are simple and classy enough, and the huge, shimmering NHL crest immediately grabs the eye.

Will neon green be used on NHL All-Star Game jerseys this season?

If you care to watch the NHL All-Star Game – and if you do, you probably have kids – you’ll know the league hasn’t used black vs. white jerseys in a long time. They’ve gone with red, white and blue combinations, they’ve tried green and purple. But neon green? That one would be new.

Lo and behold, that may be the direction the NHL goes in its 2015 All-Star Game in Columbus.

A Reebok catalog that became accessible online shows all kinds of apparel from all 30 NHL teams. Then, on Page 94, it starts into all-star paraphernalia. And that’s when we start seeing an awful lot of hints that black and bright, bright green will be a big part of the event.

First clue: take note of the picture above. The Columbus All-Star Game logo features the team’s colors, but above that we see a “00″ that looks like numbers on the back of a jersey. The numbers are black, with a neon green outline.

Hmmmmm.

Second clue: this logo that appears on Page 107 of the catalog.
