Winter Classic unveils jerseys

The NHL, in association with the Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators, unveiled the extreme-retro hockey jerseys

The National Hockey League, in association with the Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators, unveiled the extreme-retro hockey jerseys to be donned by the teams in the 2014 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic on Mar. 2 at B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver, in anticipation of tickets going on sale tomorrow.

The Senators will wear jerseys celebrating the early-NHL-era Senators, four-time Stanley Cup champions in an eight-year span from 1920-27. The sweaters feature historical design prior to 1934. The red and black stripes on a cream background, borrowed from the ‘Barber Poles’ of past jerseys, is used across the chest, arms, and socks.

The Canucks will pay homage to the Vancouver Millionaires by wearing the commemorative Millionaires jerseys. First worn by the team last season, the jerseys celebrate 100 years of hockey on the West Coast and included a large “V” for victory logo front and centre, maroon and cream striped sleeves, and a large cream stripe on maroon socks.

The jerseys are available for purchase at Canucks and Senators team stores.

The game will be broadcast on CBC and NBCSN in the U.S. beginning at 1 p.m. Tickets to the event go on sale tomorrow at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.ca/NHL or 1-855-985-5000.
