I tried looking it up and the league made the switch a few years ago. Haven't found anything definitive but it sure looks like it is mandatory. The other thing I found about it is most of the third jerseys are dark to fall in line with the home team having to wear darker uniforms. The big reason they did the switch was for marketing so they could sell more jerseys. I looked on NHL.com and couldn't find anything on it but may give another look.
