I'd like to get Brownie's name/number/C on it, and they have that exact jersey for purchase on the nhl.com site (assumably because it's a special occasion jersey this year...), but for some reason when I personalize it (select Brown's name from the drop-down menu), Brown's name doesn't appear on the back. Only the number and the C show up on the preview.
I wasn't around to see the Forum jerseys...my parents were just meeting at the time...so I hope I don't sound like an idiot in this post. But from visiting nhluniforms.com (which I discovered on this board, thanks!), and from seeing the boys play in the jersey this year, I'm pretty sure I should be able to get Brown's name on it. Do you guys have any idea why the nhl.com shop won't do it? And knowing that they won't, do you know of a way that I could get his name on it after I've gotten it? Naturally, though, I don't want it to look crappy.
Thanks for helping out.
Since it's due to the new vintage jerseys the Kings are wearing this year, there won't be a name on it. Look at the pictures of the team in the first game against Vancouver. Just the players numbers were on each jersey. So, having the name would be odd, since the current Kings vintage jerseys don't.
That being said, I was at the Chicago game and saw two people at the Trader Vic's with the jerseys. One of them (Kopitar) had it right with just the number on the back, the other (Brown) had both name and number (and it looked weird IMO). So it is possible to have it done. It just wouldn't be correct.
