The Philadelphia Flyers have a long jersey history. Cutting things down to the top five was a tough task.

Since they debuted back in 1967, the Philadelphia Flyers have gone through 19 different changes to their uniforms. That has included simple things such as nameplates and outlines. There have also been jerseys added such as the black jersey introduced back in 1997.

A full history of the Flyers jerseys can be found at the NHL Uniform Database’s website. But without further ado, here are some of the best jerseys the Flyers have worn throughout their long history.

5. 2017 Stadiums Series

The only Black uniforms on this list, I like this uniform. This jersey was worn during the 2017 Stadium series against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The jersey itself is clean; however, it is best when paired with the black pants and black socks with a thick orange line going through it. We don’t see a lot of black in any of the other Flyer uniforms, so it is a nice change of pace.

With the whole uniform setup being predominantly black, any orange pops off the jersey. I think the other black uniforms the Flyers have worn in the past didn’t meet expectations. This jersey made its debut in 2017, but it wasn’t the only time the team would wear them. The Flyers would go on to use this as their alternate in the following two seasons, most recently sporting them this past season.
