NHL Third Jersey Schedule

A handful of teams have released schedules for when they'll be wearing their third jersey throughout the season. Others, I suppose, want to keep it a surprise — like the Maple Leafs.

From the information that's been released, I'm putting together a master third jersey schedule. Here's what we've got so far.


Click to enlarge. Abbreviations: Deb - Debut for third jersey; O6 - Worn against Original Six team; 1st - Worn in first game of the season; Fin - Worn in finale game of the season; Rd - Worn in a road game.

At some point, I'll make this spreadsheet available via Google Docs. For now, have a look. See how many times your favorite team shows up either wearing a third jersey for facing a team that is.

Carolina, Edmonton and Atlanta dominate the list because they are the only three teams that have released complete schedules (that I know of).

By the way, I've read the comments and emails. I know you guys are longing for concept art but it's been pretty nuts around here with all the third jersey news. I haven't quite had time for it. But fret not, I'll have a treat for you later today. It's Friday!

It's Friday, right? I hope so, 'cause I don't have school on Fridays, and I'm home right now.

The Leafs won yesterday.. against the Wings. Remarkable.

i thought the third logos on center ice was a preseason thing... but the sabres had the retro logo for the season opener... the tease continues?

I personally think it is ridiculous that the NHL is constantly bringing out these 3rd jerseys. I know it is a quick fix for solving revenue issues as they will sell, but I think it is more important for teams to stick with a logo and create a brand around it instead of often changing it so often. my thoughts: http://jib-sports-culture.blogspot.com/2008/11/nhl-third-jerseys.html
