(Edmonton, AB) – A special addition to the Edmonton Oilers Farewell Season at Rexall Place was unveiled today as the Oilers presented their new orange jersey to Connor McDavid, the Oilers first-overall selection, at the 2015 NHL Draft.
The design of the new jersey was inspired by one worn by the Oilers early in the franchise’s life as a member of the World Hockey Association. The orange jersey will be worn for seven select home games during the Farewell Season at Rexall Place, including Opening Night on Thursday, October 15 against the St. Louis Blues.
“This new orange jersey is an exciting addition to the roster of jerseys worn by the Edmonton Oilers over the last 40 years. It is both contemporary and fresh, while also paying homage to the great history of the organization,” said Oilers Entertainment Group CEO & Vice Chair Bob Nicholson. “The wave of orange is going to look great during our Farewell Season at Rexall Place, and beyond.”
Fans can pre-order the new Oilers orange jersey now by clicking here or the Oilers Store in Kingsway Mall. The jerseys will be available for purchase in store this fall.
Edmonton Oilers hockey is presented by Molson Canadian, Rogers, Ford, Scotiabank and the Rexall Family of Pharmacies.
