It's retro all over the place! If you're familiar with WHA sweaters from the early 1970s, these will come as no surprise to you.Read More
I'm back in Vancouver for the final outdoor game of the NHL season.
The Vancouver Canucks are hosting the Ottawa Senators at B.C. Place for the 2014 NHL Heritage Classic.
I'll be on Twitter and Instagram to share my experience this weekend and you can catch it all right here in this blog post.
So keep checking back!
By the way, due to my trip, this week's Cover Story will be delayed and new blog posts will resume Tuesday.
Senators officially reveal new outdoor jersey
In essence, though, it's nothing more than a light version of the black Heritage jersey the Sens debuted two years ago — which is all it needs to be. Here's a look at the full uniform.
The third Heritage Classic will take place at B.C. Place in Vancouver 99 years after the original Senators club met the Vancouver Millionaires for the 1915 Stanley Cup series. The Millionaires swept them. Will history repeat itself this winter?
We were treated to a few sneak peek photos of this jersey over the past week, but one aspect we hadn't seen was the shoulder patches. They are, of course, the same as what we find on the black jersey. The team's name in English on the right shoulder, in French on the left.
Canucks will reprise Millionaires sweater
The other big news to come out of this morning's announcement was confirmation that their opponent, the Vancouver Canucks, will indeed bring back last year's Millionaires jerseys for the big game. Jason Spezza and Henrik Sedin were on hand to model the throwback-inspired sweaters.
Should be a great-looking, stripe-filled game! And I'm looking forward to being there.
