According to TEAM 1040 AM in Vancouver, the Canucks will be unveiling their new third jersey tonight at 5 PM locally (8 in the east). I have no independent confirmation of this but several readers did email in to say it was mentioned on the radio this afternoon.
So it looks like we'll find out tonight just what the club's new third will look like. Late rumors suggest Icethetics' earlier leak may have been inaccurate but I think that's just wishful thinking. I have multiple sources on that original leak so if we see anything else, I will be more surprised than anybody.
I'd love to see a green jersey in Reebok's NHL but I don't think we're going to get that lucky — at least not this soon.
I'll have a full report on the Canucks' unveiling tonight during the Live Chat. Make sure you're here for it!
That didn't take long. We now have official confirmation on the third jersey unveiling from the Vancouver Canucks.
Today's Canucks Report says goalie Roberto Luongo debuted a newly painted mask at practice yesterday that will likely be "a matching set for the Canucks new third jersey, which will be unveiled tonight prior to the Sports Celebrities Festival."
So there it is. Tonight we'll get to see the Canucks' new third jersey and Luongo's new mask, hopefully, with a more prominent "C" on the front. I will have pictures of both tonight here on Icethetics.
The Canucks have posted pictures of Roberto Luongo wearing his new mask on their web site. Looks nothing like the leaked jersey, but it looks fantastic. And the "C" on the side is very prominent.
The third jersey unveiling should have taken place by now or will soon. I'll have pictures up shortly. If you were there, feel free to email in an photos you shot at the event!
