The Buffalo Sabres will unveil a new third jersey on September 18, in tribute to their 40th anniversary. The new sweater will become the club's permanent alternate uniform.
I wish I had time to write up a full blog post right now. Instead, here's a snippet about the jersey design from the release on the team's website:
This classically-designed uniform is a tribute to not only the history of Buffalo hockey, but early NHL jersey designs. The 40th anniversary jersey will now serve as the team’s alternate jersey. Fans will be able to purchase the 40th anniversary jersey in the Sabres Store beginning that day.
I'll try to fill this post out later tonight. In the meantime, discuss!
Hey guys, I'd love to cover this more right now but I'm actually not going to be able to update the site until after the weekend. I'll be out of the country until Monday. But next week... I'm all over it!
If you're still waiting for an update to this post... give up! After more than a week, I've got a new post featuring third jersey news for all three of New York's NHL clubs — Sabres included.
