The first official NHL All-Star Game was played in 1947. The year of the game appears at the bottom of the NHL crest. From 1947-51 and 1953-54, the All-Stars wore the red jerseys while the defending Stanley Cup champions wore white jerseys. With the All-Stars split into two squads in 1951 and 1952, both uniforms were worn those years. The white uniform was worn from 1955-59 with the Stanley Cup Champions wearing their colored uniforms.
