The Bruins officially unveiled their new “Reverse Retro” alternate jersey this morning, and the new gold jersey matches the version that was leaked last week.
From the team and Adidas:
Initial thoughts: I like it more than I liked it when I saw the leaked image. The gold color really pops, and should look pretty good on the ice.
The Meth Bear shoulder patch is a nice touch too.
The numbers look a little too big on the back of the jersey, but it’s worth remembering that this is being worn by a model in these images, and that it’ll likely be filled out quite a bit more by pro hockey players wearing shoulder pads.
The explanation for the design:
The Reverse Retro treatment was given to the classic white uniform worn at home at the Boston Garden for 15 years, including the 1988 and 1990 Stanley Cup Finals. The shoulder patch features a fan-favorite bear crest to complement the traditional spoked-B. Honored numbers Ray Bourque and Cam Neely both donned the ‘90s version of these threads before having each of their numbers retired to the rafters at today’s TD Garden.
The jerseys will be available for presale on the Bruins Pro Shop website beginning tonight at 6 PM.
Interestingly, it appears that all teams will be wearing their Reverse Retros as their official alternates this season; initially, it was speculated that these might be in addition to the current home/away/thirds.
Have your say!
