Less than two months remain until the Nashville Predators face the Dallas Stars in the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, and the Preds have officially unveiled what they'll be sporting for the occasion.
In conjunction with adidas and the NHL, the Predators revealed their jerseys for the Winter Classic, a classic custom look that is unlike anything ever worn by the franchise.
From adidas: "The new jersey was created with a heritage aesthetic, featuring designs inspired by Nashville's rich hockey history and its passionate hockey fanbase. The script crest, felt block lettering and classic striping create a nostalgic look suitable for the NHL Winter Classic's celebration of the game's origins outdoors. The retro look will make its on-ice debut on January 1, when the Predators take on the Dallas Stars at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, Texas."

Previously introduced to Smashville back in September, the jersey features a new logo "which takes the form of a roaring saber-toothed tiger's head and represents the Predators' size, strength and speed. The new logo has a retro look to pay homage to the history and heritage of hockey in Nashville."
The new logo is featured on one of the shoulders of the jersey with the 2020 NHL Winter Classic logo affixed to the opposite shoulder. The inside collar features the date of the game as well as a guitar fretboard, a nod to Music City.
