A few seasons ago, the Arizona Coyotes decided to bring back their original kachina jerseys for a throwback game. That evolved into wearing them every home weekend game. And now they are going to wearing them for the playoffs.

The original kachina jersey is experiencing a resurgence in popularity right now and the Coyotes are running with it. With the unique playoff format, there is no reason not to do something cool like this.
This will be the Coyotes first time in the playoffs since their run to the Western Conference final in 2012. This will also be the first time they compete in the postseason as the “Arizona” Coyotes rather than the Phoenix Coyotes.
Arizona is set to face off against the Nashville Predators in a best of five series when the playoffs begin. The playoffs are currently set to be played in hub cities that are to be determined.
