BOSTON - Today, Thursday, November 8, at 10:00 a.m., the Boston Bruins unveiled the new adidas adizero Authentic NHL jersey that will be worn by the team for the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic when the team takes on the Chicago Blackhawks on January 1, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Paying homage to the Bruins' 1930's era uniform, the brown and gold uniform features heritage materials and striping. Highlighting the throwback look, the crest features the classic "B" logo from the team's Home & Away jerseys, created with a two-layer felt application. To complete the theme, the player names and numbers feature two-layer felt materials.
Additional design details include a list of the years that the team has won the Stanley Cup® Championship (1929, 1939, 1941, 1970, 1972, 2011). Each championship year has been set within a shamrock as a nod to Notre Dame Stadium and emblazoned onto the interior neck line.
The 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic marks the third time in the 11-year history of the event that the Bruins will have participated and the third time a special jersey has been created. In the 2010 NHL Winter Classic, the Bruins wore a gold jersey with a rounded Spoked-B, reminiscent of the inaugural Spoked-B from the 1948-49 season. In 2016, the Bruins wore a jersey reminiscent of the Bruins first-ever sweater from the inaugural 1924 season, which featured a primary logo of a bear in between the words 'Boston' and 'Bruins.'
