The Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday unveiled a new logo and uniform that will be put to use starting next season.

With models Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos, along with franchise founder and Hockey Hall of Famer Phil Esposito and former captain Dave Andreychuk, the new home jersey is a blue sweater with blue pants, and a new Lightning bolt crest in a circle.

The road uniform is a white jersey with the Lightning crest and Tampa Bay in writing above it.

Lightning CEO Tod Leiweke said the goal of the new uniform was to create something "iconic," "bold," and "classic."

"When a player pulls on the Lightning sweater, we want him to know exactly who he represents and what the mark he is wearing stands for," said GM Steve Yzerman. "The long-term goal is for the Lightning to be an iconic franchise, rich in tradition with championship values and a strong legacy."
Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
