The Buffalo Sabres are celebrating their 50th anniversary in style.
The Sabres unveiled a Golden Jersey on Friday that they will wear for 13 games this season to commemorate the occasion; 2020 will be their 50th year in the NHL.
The white jerseys have the iconic Sabres crest in gold and navy blue. There are five stripes on each sleeve and at the bottom of the jersey to represent 50 years. The details also include logos from throughout Sabres history on the inner neckline. The uniforms are made complete with white gloves and navy blue pants.
Buffalo will not wear navy blue after this season; the Sabres will return to royal blue as their primary color in 2020-21.
The first chance fans will have to see the sweaters in a game will be Oct. 5, when the Sabres play their home opener against the New Jersey Devils. They'll also wear the uniforms twice in November, three times in December, once in January, twice in February, three times in March and for their regular-season finale at KeyBank Center against the Philadelphia Flyers on April 4.
The jersey can be preordered at the Sabres Store at KeyBank Center, where it will be available for purchase Sept. 17.
The Sabres entered the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks in 1970-71, when the League expanded to 14 teams.
