The NHL will have advertising on the front of team jerseys for the first time starting in the 2022-23 season, a source told ESPN.

The league's board of governors formally voted this month to approve jersey advertisements. The NHL had surveyed its teams and found the majority of them in favor of jersey ads. The ads will be featured in a 3-inch-by-3.5-inch rectangle, which is larger than the NBA's 2.5-by-2.5-inch space for uniform ads.

The news was first reported by Sportico.
