Canadiens tease Winter Classic jersey ahead of Friday unveiling

This afternoon the Montreal Canadiens teased what appears to be their new Winter Classic jersey with a couple of photos via social media.

The images show close-ups of the collar, which seem to be mimic the wool sweater-style design we saw on the Bruins' new outdoor jersey last week.

Accompanying the images is simply a date — Nov. 6, 2015, this Friday. In all likelihood that's the day the sweater will be fully unveiled.

The Habs will face the Boston Bruins at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on Jan. 1 in the 2016 NHL Winter Classic.

UPDATE · Nov 4 · The Canadiens teased us with a couple more photos today and yesterday. Looks like we're definitely getting a red-trimmed blue stripe across the chest with a white "CH" also trimmed in red.
