The Detroit Red Wings on Monday unveiled the jersey they will wear in the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series against the Colorado Avalanche on Feb. 27.
The game will be held at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies
of Major League Baseball.
"The coloration of the uniform is primarily red, with simplified white accents, creating a bold, striking stadium scale visual while staying true to the color identity of the franchise," the Red Wings said in a statement. "The crest features a redesigned 'D' logo, updated in its design style to connect more directly with the iconic modern-day Winged Wheel logo.
"The single white diagonal stripe across the chest celebrates the iconic stripe of this storied Original Six franchise. Its diagonal placement is inspired by modern automotive aesthetics, and is a tribute to the automotive industry that has been a foundation of the city of Detroit.
"Stadium size numbers on the sleeves and back have been redesigned to better connect with the modern font style of the new 'D' crest. The nameplate lettering is arched, as a way of connecting to the design of the team’s current nameplate lettering."
Alumni from the Avalanche and Red Wings will play at Coors Field on Feb. 25. The teams faced each other five times in the Stanley Cup Playoffs from 1996-2002 and combined to win the Stanley Cup five times during that span.
This is the third appearance in an outdoor game by the Red Wings since the 2008-09 season.
