The Philadelphia Flyers became the 12th team to unveil their new third jersey for the 2008-09 season. They did so before season ticket holders tonight in Philadelphia — and then later on their web site.
The unveiling confirms Icethetics' previous leaks. The Flyers will go with an orange retro-style alternate sweater with a special white nameplate on the back. Even the striping pattern of the sweater is modeled after the classic '70s uniforms.
Along with the above picture, the Flyers posted a special tribute video on their web site. The throwback jerseys have caused nostalgia to run rampant! And I don't know any fan that isn't loving it.
Great video even if you're not a Flyers fan.
And another great third jersey to look forward to.
The Flyers have added some photographs from the event they held tonight for season ticket holders where they unveiled the new sweater.
There you can see captain Mike Richards proudly posing with his new orange sweater. And here we have Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn and Glen Metropolit signing autographs.
Other pictures in the gallery show Marty Biron, Antero Niittymaki, Luca Sbisa, Ossi Vaananen and Jeff Carter were also meeting with fans. These pictures will all be added to the Flyers gallery at Third Jersey Central.
