Vintage Jerseys Officially Confirmed
The Sabres also officially announced today that they will wear their vintage white jerseys for the Winter Classic game while the Penguins will wear their vintage powder blue jerseys.
"Wearing the classic white jersey is the perfect fit for a classic outdoor game," Buffalo Sabres Managing Partner Larry Quinn said in a statement released on the Sabres official website. "Our future retro jersey will be the dark blue sweater, so this maybe one of the last times our team wears this jersey. One more historic footnote to the game."
If the jerseys look as good as the mockup on Sabres.com, chances are Sabres fans will be wanting much more of them.
