Updated on April 29, 2009

NHL jerseys don't sell as much as jerseys from the MLB, NFL and NBA, but those hockey fans who do purchase and wear them are very loyal to their squads. As a group, NHL hockey fans are more apt to own jerseys from their favorite teams and/or players.

What are the top selling NHL jerseys? Depending on what time period you look at, you'll get different answers but the teams that usually sell the best include the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers, Washington Capitals, Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins. And of course, Canada's two most popular teams are always top sellers to: the Toronto Maple Leafs and the team with the most all-time Stanley Cup titles, the Montreal Canadiens.

NHL jerseys can be purchased in a number of different styles and types. Fans can purchase replica jerseys and the more expensive authentic jerseys. Fans can also get jerseys customized with their own name and number on the back, or purchase a jersey of their favorite player. In addition, jerseys come available in both home and road color schemes, and most teams offer at least one 'alternate' jersey version for purchase

So which players jerseys are the top sellers today? Based on stats from teh last part of 2008, the top five selling NHL player jerseys are:

1) Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins

2) Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Capitals

3) Mike Richards, Philadelphia Flyers

4) Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers

5) Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins

      And now Ovechkin and Crosby are going head-to-head in the second round of the 2009 playoffs. This will be the series that gets the most media attention by far.

      Not quite Mario versus Gretzky from years past but the most high profile matchup in the NHL these days.
