New NHL ugly sweaters are so bad they’re good

The National Hockey League is joining the party.

The ugly sweater party, that is.

NHL.com is featuring a new line of ugly Christmas sweaters — think candy canes, argyle, snowflakes and leaping reindeer — to their team gear, just in time for ugly sweater party season.

The sweaters run for $70 a pop and can be ordered online through the NHL shop.

Let's take a look at what the Canadian teams are bringing to the party. (Sorry, Senators fans: Despite the frigid temperatures in Ottawa, there is no ugly sweater for the Sens.)

This terrible sweater has been so popular, the team store is struggling to keep it in stock. (Seriously.)

The NHL isn't the only league to feature these so-bad-they're-good tops; The National Football League also released their own sweaters. Check them out here. (It's worth a click.)
