According to ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski, Adidas will not return as the NHL’s official supplier of apparel, including uniforms, after two more seasons.

ESPN learned that Adidas wasn’t interested in renewing its contract with the NHL, which had reached out to other apparel companies and told them they were looking for a replacement.

“The NHL and Adidas look forward to continuing to work closely together over the next two years and a smooth transition to the new authentic NHL jersey supplier to be announced by the NHL in due course,” the NHL said in a statement.

Adidas, willing to pay at least double what Reebok had previously, replaced them as the league’s apparel company after the 2016-17 season and made the jerseys for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
