Top 25 jersey sales in January 2013
 
http://espn.go.com/blog/nhl/post/_/i...es-for-january

Flyer's Giroux tops list.

Wonder if this includes both the Canadian and US portions of the NHL site. I assume since there isn't a single Leafs player it must be US only but who knows.

No Fun Shogun 02-08-2013 11:33 AM

Neat to see Toews at #2 and three other Hawks representing on the list.

Big McLargehuge 02-08-2013 12:40 PM

3 Penguins in the top 6 and none of them are Malkin (who's 13th).

Only one player from Canadian team and it's US player.

Still seems odd that they quote NHL.com as the source, but this is obviously US generated sales.

They quote shop.nhl.com as their source.

If you go there from Canada they suggest you instead go to canada.shop.nhl.com.

I'm assuming hte statistics differentiate between the two.

Good players in a classic jersey = success

CHI is one of the best looking jerseys.

theoretically speaking, who from the Canadian teams would you expect to be in the Top 25 if sales outside the US were included?

Iginla? Hall? The Sedins? Can't think of any other really marketable guys on the Leafs, Habs, Sens, or Jets that might crack that list.

Kessel, Price, Subban, Spezza, Alfredsson

well they're all stars to varying degrees, I'll give you that. But popular enough to be in the Top 25?

Then again T.J. Oshie is on that list, so perhaps you're on to something.

Ryan Callahan? Good player, but I can name about 5 guys from the Devils that are better, and a few on the Isles as well.

He's a lunch pale guy...but man is he becoming overrated. Can he score over 30 goals and over 60 points at least once?

He's the captain of an iconic franchise in the biggest market in the US/Canada. The Rangers are an elite team to top it off.

silvercanuck 02-08-2013 02:07 PM

I am very surprised that Kesler is in the top 25. The Canucks are the only Canadian team with a regional US TV package but I doubt Americans in the Pacific Northwest are buying a lot of NHL merchandise. The fact that he's currently injured is interesting as well. Could his Olympic team USA involvement be driving sales?

What about the Norris Trophy Winner?

They've won so many Stanley Cups over the past 73 years it's almost hard to count. So iconic :sarcasm:

The Rangers have the thinnest, most insignificant history of all the original 6 teams. Very overhyped franchise. Plus all they do is try and block shots, hang on for dear life every game.

I think its safe to say that Toronto is by far the biggest hockey market in the world. Kessel and even Phaneuf are probably in the top 25 players sold if you consider all avenues in both coutries.

I can't stand the Leafs but even outside of Toronto they are extremely popular country wide. Habs would be a close second and a Subban or Price would likely make it. Its too bad better statistics are available.

The Leafs may be the biggest franchise in Canada and by default in the NHL but Toronto may as well be Inuvik as far as any American is concerned.

Nice to see three Ranger players there.

Hell of a player, but are many outside of Ottawa buying his jersey in enough numbers to be Top 25 in the league? I would be very surprised if he was.

Meh, among hockey fans I've met here in the US, most of them recognize Toronto and Montreal as both cities and as historic teams. Plus, there's always a few people from both cities in many US cities. I'm in St. Louis right now, so take that as you will. It's a decent hockey market here and people know of the Leafs. Of course, does anyone really respect the Leafs here? No, but that's because of how we've been playing since the prior lockout.

edit -- people also tend to be aware of Vancouver (both as a city and as having a good NHL team). Most people don't know what Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, or Winnipeg are. Although a few have done those Yellowstone / Banff trips and know Calgary; and a few of the ones more politically informed know that Ottawa is the capital of Canada.

Inkling 02-08-2013 05:41 PM

I wonder how many Canadians even purchase jerseys on NHL.com (or canada.shop.nhl.com) since we have so many options up here for hockey stuff. NHL.com has a terrible reputation for jerseys, specifically for the lettering and numbering they use. I would go any of a number of places locally before I bought from NHL.com, or even other places like icejerseys.com or River City Sports.
