As for what the rec hockey players wear, once again the most common NHL jerseys I see have a flightless bird on them and I'd say nine times out of ten feature the number eighty seven.
This is the truth now, when I first started playing 6-7 years ago all the kids my age wore Red Wings jerseys and now it's Penguins. I remember buying a Carolina jersey just to be different

I line in the EPL so I go to a few different rinks and at every game there is always a Capitals jersey and 8/10 times it has 8 and Ovechkin on the back, it's also hard to go to a game without seeing a Rangers or Leafs jersey. The Florida jerseys must definitely be a Nottingham thing, but I don't think I saw one when I went to the NIC to watch GB v Netherlands.
