The Bruins unveiled their new alternate jersey this afternoon, giving us a throwback to the mid-20th century look.
From the team:
There had been some speculation that the new jerseys might be a brown-ish shade, but these are black. Overall, they’re pretty good, but I still think the team should have gone bold and gone with a gold alternate. Some day...
From the team, here’s an explanation:
The new alternate sweater pays homage to the club’s rich heritage, harkening back to the late 1940s, early 1950s era when Bruins legends like Milt Schmidt once styled a gold, varsity block-B as their uniform centerpiece. The new, all-black 2019 alternate features single gold and white stripes around the elbows and bottom of the sweater, and an all-gold collar with gold lettering that matches the Bruins’ current primary jersey. The sleeve and hem stripes are inspired by the Bruins unique numbered front jerseys from 1940-1948.
A little history for you!
The B’s will wear the jerseys 11 times this season, the first being this coming Friday against the New York Rangers. No word yet on when the other 10 will be.
