During this afternoon's Live Chat, those who were able to join us enjoyed the standard pre-leak history lesson looking at the Ottawa Senators' past sweaters. The Senators will officially unveil their third jerseys a week from today, but you can have a sneak peek right now.
But be sure to check out the replay of Live Chat X for all of this afternoon's fun. In the meantime, check out the grainy image of the new Sens jersey.
As with the Sharks leak two nights ago, the image quality is certainly lacking, but you get the gist. It's black with the word SENS scrawled across the chest. It's got a unique striping pattern under the arms we haven't seen on any other EDGE NHL sweater.
It features the half elbow stripes below the jersey number seen on the Oilers and Panthers home and road sweaters. The numbering and lettering style appears to be the same as the red and white jerseys. However, it's difficult in this image to make out the type used for the text on the front.
I'd like to see it on a player, but this may be toward the top of my list of new third jerseys. However, I would've preferred either the secondary "O" logo or the new 2D logo introduced last year on the front.
Just like we did with the Sharks, if any of our talented artists would like to take a stab at creating a graphic that enhances what we're seeing here, I'd be thrilled to add it as a follow-up to this post.
Remember, the Sens are scheduled to officially showcase the new uni on Saturday, November 22.
