NHL Centennial Classic uniforms revealed

Maple Leafs, Red Wings unveil sweaters for Jan. 1 game in Toronto @NHLdotcom

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings each unveiled their uniforms for the 2017 Scotiabank NHL Centennial Classic on Monday.

Toronto will wear blue sweaters with white trim and their Maple Leaf crest. There will be silver on the white trim and the veins of the leaf in the crest to celebrate the Maple Leafs' 100th season.

The sweaters will also have a Centennial Classic patch and the words "Honour, Pride and Courage" stitched into the back of the neck. It's a quote from former Maple Leafs coach Conn Smythe and are values the franchise strives to represent. The pants will also have a 'T' to pay homage to the franchise's origin as the Toronto St. Pats.

"The NHL Centennial Classic will be a special moment in our year-long celebration of 100 years of Maple Leafs hockey and this new sweater offers a signature look for the occasion, combining important elements of our club's past, but also our present and future as it features the new Maple Leaf crest," Maple Leafs president and alternate governor Brendan Shanahan said. "We look forward to this event being a memorable day for both our fans and our team, and this unique sweater will be an important part of those memories."

Detroit will wear white sweaters with red trim and their Winged Wheel crest. The crest will have silver tones in it, as will the top stripe on each sleeve along with the trim on the numbers. The Red Wings will also have the years of their 11 Stanley Cup championships on stripes on each of the sleeves. The pants will have a 'D' similar to that of the Detroit Cougars during their 1926-27 season.

The game will take place on Jan. 1 (3 p.m. ET; NBC, SN, TVA Sports) at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto.
