This morning, the Devils unveiled their new third jersey. Devils players have had the chance for a few weeks now to not only see the jersey, but see it in full action on the ice through various video shoots and photoshoots.
After practice on Tuesday, Devils defenseman P.K. Subban was asked his thoughts on the third jersey.

"I think people know I'm a person with an open mind. I think it's great," said Subban. "Adidas is one of my partners. When I went to Portland last summer, they showed me a couple of the third jersey options for some of the teams. I'm really excited. New Jersey has so much history and so much culture. I think they did a really good job with the jersey."
One of the signature pieces of the third jersey is the word 'Jersey' written across the front in script. Subban commented on that.
"Thinking about wearing that jersey to a game is super cool. I never call it New Jersey, I call it 'Jersey' so wearing 'Jersey' on the front is super cool," he said, adding that the jersey has appeal to both avid hockey fans and those who may be more casual but are fashion conscious.
"You have the right partner. Adidas has the crossover ability to make something that appeases to the hockey fan base and gets other people involved, too," Subban continued. "We want people from the area want to wear it."

Dougie Hamilton was also asked his thoughts and a lot of them echoed those of Subban, particularly being a fan of the entire look.
"Right when I saw it, I liked it a lot and once we saw them with the full kit with the gloves and pants and socks, I thought it looked really good. We're all excited to wear them and I think it'll look pretty cool."
Subban added that he hopes that the 'Jersey' jersey makes its way into the mainstream.
"I know I'd wear it. For me, I'd love to see it in a rap video, that'd be really cool."
