Exactly a week after the Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their 2012 Winter Classic uniform, the New York Rangers have announced they will do the same. The event will be streamed online for fans.

We'll see on Monday if it proves as true as the Flyers jersey leak.
The following information about the unveiling was posted on the Rangers' website:
Fans can log on to Blueshirtsunited.com and Facebook.com/nyrangers to tune into the live streaming jersey unveiling which will feature select current players and will be hosted by MSG Network talent Dave Maloney and Al Trautwig. Official Winter Classic jerseys will be available for purchase beginning December 5th at Madison Square Garden.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!
