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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
