Winter Classic Jerseys To Be Unveiled

The Winter Classic 2009 jerseys will be unveiled on Saturday night when the Chicago Blackhawks face the Detroit Red Wings at the United Center. The announcement was made this morning on the Hawks' official web site.

The unveiling will take place during the broadcast of the game tomorrow night on WGN-TV and FSN Detroit. I'm sure pictures will be posted online by both teams. If anyone can record the unveiling and post it on YouTube, I'd be happy to put your video here on Icethetics — that's assuming the teams don't beat you to it.

So anyway, remember how I told you yesterday I'd have Winter Classic news I'd get back to you on? Well there it is. I was just waiting for some confirmation before posting and now we've got it.

I'm also still working on that Penguins news. Basically, it sounds like their new third jersey might not look exactly like what they wore at last year's Winter Classic. Close, but not exact. I'll get you more when I have it.

I'm stoked, this is the first time the wings have worn a nonstandard unifom since the 1991-92 season. I hope both teams do something slightly different, though i'll be happy either way.

I have heard from people that are close to the pens organization that the new jerseys are the ones from the 1967-1968 season. I am trying to get a pic from someplace I know that has them.

You mean these Andy? When Wilkes-Barre used them they were the best AHL jerseys...

I think everyone will end up satisfied with the jerseys and that they won't be too over-the-top. Last year we saw some beautiful jerseys hit the ice, and I don't think this year will be any different.

I'm anxious!

might be just speculation, but this guy claims he knows the winter classic jerseys, and has used the nhluniforms pics to show it. not the ones we expected, if they're real
