Sabres to Launch New 3rd!

The Buffalo Sabres will unveil a new third jersey on September 18, in tribute to their 40th anniversary. The new sweater will become the club's permanent alternate uniform.

I wish I had time to write up a full blog post right now. Instead, here's a snippet about the jersey design from the release on the team's website:

This classically-designed uniform is a tribute to not only the history of Buffalo hockey, but early NHL jersey designs. The 40th anniversary jersey will now serve as the team’s alternate jersey. Fans will be able to purchase the 40th anniversary jersey in the Sabres Store beginning that day.

I'll try to fill this post out later tonight. In the meantime, discuss!
