Red Wings Unveil Jerseys for 2017 Centennial Classic
The Detroit Red Wings unveiled their jerseys for the 2017 Scotiabank Centennial Classic at BMO Field in Toronto on Sunday, January 1st against the Maple Leafs.
These limited-edition jerseys uniforms pay homage to the NHL's 100th anniversary season. A lot of the white trim on their traditional jerseys is replaced by silver most notable on the winged wheel logo, number and name trim.
Also, the thick stripe on the sleeves are now three thin red stripes honoring the Detroit Cougars. The new look features two thin stripes on the bottom of the jersey instead of the large stripe. Detroit also honors all of their championship teams with an additional silver stripe on the sleeves with the years they won the Stanley Cup.
The 2017 Centennial Classic marks the fourth time the Red Wings have played in an outdoor game.
Two years ago, the Red Wings lost a thriller to Toronto 3-2 in the 2014 Winter Classic at the Big House in Ann Arbor, Michigan. That game set the record for the most attended hockey game since 2008.
The Maple Leafs unveiled their jerseys as well and I hope the game is a good the jerseys.
