Canucks and Beyond
by Alanah McGinley on 11/14/08 at 01:16 AM ET
The Vancouver Canucks unveiled their new third jersey Thursday night at the Sports Celebrities Festival and they didn’t reinvent the hockey sweater with the look - it’s a classic vintage throwback that honours past eras of Canucks hockey.
The jersey, which will be officially worn on-ice by the Canucks when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on November 15, is familiar in its overall look. Of course there’s some subtle twists on the original.
The sweater will make its first appearance on Saturday, meanwhile you can check out the photos and poll below.
As the Canucks release points out, it’s really a throwback to the past but with at least one notable difference that you see right away: a revamped stick-in-rink logo.
I’m not sure what was wrong with the original stick logo frankly, but what the hell… it’s like Canucks abstract art, maybe?
So what does everyone else think? And before you answer the poll question, keep in mind that there were worse ideas floating around out there today...
