As part of their 100th anniversary celebration, the Montreal Canadiens will be wearing special Centennial Night jerseys throughout the season. Even better, players will be using special to gear to really give it that authentic look.
And by that I mean brown goalie pads.
On Tuesday, Habs Inside/Out was at practice and shot some photos of Jaroslav Halak and Carey Price breaking in their new gear.
Certainly something you don't see every day. That and the jersey on the right. IceJerseys.com has a great hi-res image of the new 1915 Centennial sweater. You can even buy one for the right price.
Speaking of Price.
The first Centennial Jersey Night was October 20 when the Canadiens beat the Florida Panthers. Basically it was just an excuse to wear their white sweater at home which is why it didn't really get a mention here. The next one will be Saturday, November 15 when they will wear the 1945 white jersey.
That's going to be a busy night, by the way, in terms of jerseys. Both the Penguins and Canucks will debut their new alternates on that night — both of which we've already seen. The Pens officially unveiled theirs this week and the Canucks' has been leaking like crazy.
However, the 1915 Canadiens sweater seen above won't make it's 21st century debut until Thursday, December 4 when the Habs face the Rangers.
