NHL teams are reportedly going to be wearing new third jerseys for the upcoming season.

Dubbed “Reverse Retro” jerseys, rumors had gone around a few weeks ago that Bruins were going to go with a gold jersey for their version.

If our man Pete Blackburn is to be believed, the rumors were true:

Uhhhh...huh.

I’m not entirely sure what to think about these. I’m glad that they’re going back to gold, as I’d kind of seen enough of the black alternates.

However, I think dafoomie put it best:

I don’t think the Bruins were ever going to go back to the Pooh jerseys, but this one seems kind of like a mash-up of a few different things.

The crest and Meth Bear are straight out of the 1970’s. However, the stripes along the bottom look like the late 1960’s.

Basically, there’s a lot going on here.

This is likely going to be a case of a “looks better in person” type deal, so I’ll reserve full judgment for now.

But the initial reaction is a solid “meh.”
