It's been mostly quiet on the third jersey news front so far today. But several fans have been hard at work designing sweater concepts based on the rumors that have been swirling lately. There's a lot to get to so I'll dive in.
The Hurricanes may adopt a third jersey this season that looks a little something like this.
Meanwhile the Maple Leafs will likely take a more traditional path.
It's more likely they'll end up with a white sweater, but blue is certainly a possibility as well.
The Bruins have sort of already leaked their third jersey design and it looks like this.
The Oilers will probably go with a retro look...
...same as the Sabres.
Still other teams may ditch the historical look for something more contemporary. If the Stars go with a green third, it could look like this.
And the Lightning and Senators might go with informal nicknames on the front — the Bolts and Sens.
Not sure about the gold Ottawa sweater. I like black better for them. I also wouldn't expect to see the 2D logo on the front of a jersey anytime soon, but that's just me. I've been wrong before.
I'll have more later today including the next division in the IHA branding project.
