The Boston Bruins aren’t having the best season so far, but their players remain massively popular.
The sweaters of forwards Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic and defenseman Zdeno Chara all were among the 25 top-selling jerseys on the NHL’s online shop in 2014, according to the league’s public relations department. Bergeron was the only Bruin in the top 10 at No. 8, while both Chara (11) and Lucic (13) finished in the top 15.
Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane claimed the top spot with the NHL’s best-selling jersey, knocking off 2013 best-seller and Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby, who finished second. The jerseys of Kane’s teammate Jonathan Toews (3), New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist (4) and Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin (5) rounded out the top five.
The star-laden Blackhawks had the most jerseys on the top 25 list with five: Goaltender Corey Crawford (15) and forwards Marian Hossa (16) and Patrick Sharp (23) joined Kane and Toews.
Jerseys from American teams such as Chicago and Boston fared well, but squads north of the border weren’t as lucky. Zero jerseys from players on Canadian teams made the list.
