New Third Jersey Image Leaks

Apparently, there's a guy or some illegitimate company selling bogus Rbk EDGE third jerseys on ebay. How do we know they're fake? Well for one thing, Reebok hasn't started shipping them yet. But that doesn't mean there weren't legitimate pictures of them.

The listings included six teams in all: the Atlanta Thrashers, Boston Bruins, Buffalo Sabres, Phoenix Coyotes, St. Louis Blues and Tampa Bay Lightning. That's three teams that have officially unveiled them and three that haven't. Let's start with those.

There's nothing that we haven't already seen, but there are pics from different angles than what we've already seen. This is most helpful with the Coyotes in seeing what those sleeve stripes look like. But what makes me think these pictures show us what the actual jerseys will look like? Because of three others we've seen officially that were right.

Among the plethora of pictures were some close ups of the crests. First, the new ones...

...and then Atlanta's just because I thought it was a cool shot.

Thanks to Charlie for the tip on these pictures.

Hope that satisfies your itch for third jersey news tonight. I'll have more tomorrow, plus an announcement regarding the new banner some you have already noticed at the top of the page.

Sens Tease Third On Facebook

Hey, who says a professional hockey team can't start a viral marketing campaign on a popular social networking web site? Certainly not the Ottawa Senators.

The Sens have posted a teaser image of their new black third jersey on their Facebook page. And this is it.

Looks like we'll see it on Saturday, November 22. I've added that date to the Countdowns. Thanks to Julian for the heads up on this image.

I like the lace-up collar and the red underneath. I think it'll be a nice jersey. I just can't wait to see what they put on the front. We've heard it's going to be the word SENS but we haven't seen what it will actually look like.

In case you missed it, I posted my thoughts on what the text might look like a couple weeks ago. Nothing official, just some musings based on various leak descriptions.
