Report: The Bruins Are Getting New Uniforms
The Bruins have donned the current iteration of their iconic black and gold uniform for the past decade. But changes are reportedly on the way.
Citing multiple sources, Chris Creamer’s Sportslogos.net reports that the B’s are one of a dozen NHL teams getting new uniforms for the 2017-18 season, as part of the league’s new deal with Adidas. The Buffalo Sabres, Calgary Glames, Colorado Avalance, Columbus Blue Jackets, Dallas Stars, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, New Jersey Devils, and Ottawa Senators are also reportedly getting a makeover.
Unlike the league’s previous deal with Reebok, which brought us the current version of the spoked “B,” there will be no changes to the teams’ primary logos, Creamer reports, and most changes are expected to be minor tweaks. There will be no alternate thirds for the 2017-18 season, so the Bruins’ 2016 Winter Classic fauxbacks will go the way of the dodo. (And that’ll likely mean we won’t see a return of the Pooh bear anytime soon.)
While additional details remain sparse, here’s hoping the Bruins turn back the clock and opt for this classic kit from the days of Cam Neely and Ray Bourque, worn from 1981-82 until 1994-95.
