The Sabres have had 14 games rescheduled this season and the original Reverse Retro jersey schedule was affected by those changes. The jerseys were set to be worn for the first time on February 11 against Washington.
The Reverse Retro jersey, modeled after the team's first third jersey that debuted during the 2000-01 season, features a crossed swords logo on the crest and the team's primary logo from 1996-2006 on the shoulders in an updated blue and gold color scheme.
The Reverse Retro program is an NHL-wide initiative in which all 31 teams will wear throwback jerseys with a remixed color scheme. Each team will wear the new jerseys multiple times during the season. The uniforms were unveiled in November.
