Bruins Classic Jersey = CONFIRMED (Plus a Juicy Jersey Tidbit)

Yesterday I was able to confirm that the leak we’ve been seeing around the webs, including right here on The Boston Sports Network, is legit.

Now, this may not come as a major shocker, I mean, why would Tim Thomas take a photo with Carrie Milbank (yes, that’s her name, stop asking) in a fake jersey?  Throwing off jersey geeks like me is probably not priority one with the Bruins, though it may be higher than signing Phil Kessel.  So that’s why I’ve got a new bit of info to sate everyone’s palates for tonight’s release.

What will the number and nameplate font be?  That’s still undecided!

Not the biggest scoop of all time, but apparently it still hasn’t been chosen.  That could be the reason for this:

All Season Ticket Holders can apply their 15% Pro-Shop discount to their purhcase of their Winter Classic jersey and receive free shipping.  Lettering will not be included. In addition, by pre-ordering your jersey at the ‘State of the Bruins,’ you will be guaranteed your jersey prior to the Winter Classic and receive a Winter Classic gift.

So, what will the back look like?  Will they even use a nameplate?  They didn’t in the combination of the two past uniforms their using to make the hybrid Classic jersey:

1948-49 jersey (from NHLUniforms.com)

1948-49 jersey (from NHLUniforms.com)

1958-59 jersey (From NHLuniforms.com)

1958-59 jersey (From NHLuniforms.com)

So, on the morning of the unveiling, that’s the latest news regarding the Bruins Winter Classic jersey.

Due to work, I won’t be attending the Classic tonight, so stay tuned for the latest updates both here and on Icethetics.

Also, if you haven’t yet listened, check out Josh and I’s 1st ever Podcast.  I think it’s pretty good, and I’m totally, totally unbiased.  I swear!
