Just thought I'd give a quick tip to those looking into purchasing customized gear on Shop.NHL.com.
If, like me, you're looking into getting a piece of clothing customized with your favorite Panthers player or prospect, the website will give you an error when you type out the player of your choice. Something along the lines of :"Roster players are currently unavailable". This is annoying, right?
Well, if you type a single space before the name, the html comparison code will fail since "Versteeg" and " Versteeg" aren't an exact match. This will let you customize your article of clothing with whatever name you desire. I have personally tested this and received my hoodie yesterday with "Versteeg 32" on the back. The space won't be accounted for on the clothing item since it's impossible to see a space on paper. Whoever is in charge of ironing on the letters won't be able to tell.
