According to a report from SB Nation, 13 of the league's teams will have different jersey designs, while the others will remain largely the same, aside from moving from Reebok to Adidas.

Since the 2007-08 season, Reebok, a subsidiary of Adidas, has been the exclusive manufacturer of jerseys for the NHL, and even if the Flyers won't be one of the teams changing their look completely, there will be some changes on the way.
According to SB Nation, at least for one season, the NHL will do away with third jerseys to make the initial jersey implementation easier. The Flyers wore special gold-trimmed 50th-anniversary jerseys last season for 12 home games. The new Adidas jerseys are also said to feature new lightweight material to keep the players cooler and improve flexibility.
So, are big changes on the way? We'll find out in nine days.
