The NHL has been around for 100 years. What better than to come to the nation’s capital to celebrate our countries 150th birthday than with a couple of the oldest, most storied franchises on the ice, outdoors!
The way they used to play.
Here they are! The Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators have revealed their jerseys for the special day in December and the NHL 100 Classic.
The Sens will wear a primarily red uniform with a big “O” crest, which originates from the first days of the franchise.
This version of the crest is crest is repeated on the helmet and pants.
The Habs are using a jersey that reminds me of my youth. You know back in the days when they made my life miserable beating my Boston Bruins out of the playoffs.
They are bright. If it snows, how will the Sens line them up for a big hit?
A nice touch here; on the inside collar of the sweater there is a line from Jon McCrea’s poem, “In Flanders Field,” written in French.
It’s not too different from the sweater the Montreal Canadiens already wear, but it will be great to see it at TD Place this December 6th!
