Jets' Wheeler: Ads 'would tarnish' NHL jerseys

Kelvin Kuo / USA TODAY Sports

The NHL reportedly struck a uniform deal with Adidas on Monday, giving the company exclusive rights to produce the jerseys worn by all 30 NHL clubs.

The deal is expected to be formally announced next month, which could pave the way for ads on jerseys when the league's current deal with Reebok expires prior to the 2017-18 season.
