MONTREAL - The Canadiens unveiled on Tuesday the new jersey that the team will wear outdoors against the Senators for the NHL100 Classic, on December 16 at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa.
As with at the 2016 Winter Classic, which saw the Habs take on the Boston Bruins at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA, Montreal's new jersey will once again feature some unique design details:
Stanley Cup Silver
Stanley Cup Silver highlights some of the key details of the jersey, adorning the collar, the logo, and the sleeves. The silver gives the jersey a shiny, metallic look that has never been seen before on a Canadiens jersey.
NHL100 Classic Patch
The NHL100 Classic patch can be found on the right shoulder of the jersey. The patch is written in French, honoring not only the heritage of the Montreal Canadiens, but also the 100th anniversary of the founding of the NHL at the Winsor Hotel in Montreal on November 26, 1917.
An Homage to Champions
Each of the years in which the Canadiens won their League-record 24 Stanley Cups is featured in silver writing between the classic red and blue stripes on the sleeves, with the right sleeve showcasing the triumphant seasons that fell between 1916 and 1960, and the left sleeve highlighting the conquests from 1965 to 1993.
Quote from "In Flanders Fields"
The inside of the collar features an excerpt from the iconic John McCrea poem "In Flanders Fields," which has been emblazoned on the walls of the Canadiens dressing room since 1952. The excerpt appears in French, and translates to "To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high."
This design combines moisture management and airflow circulation for a cooler, more breathable wear.
The jersey features performance poly fabric and a new lightweight crest and numbering system that make the jersey 19% lighter.
The Canadiens logo is now flexible and more durable, making the jersey fit more comfortably.
