Vintage Hockey Jerseys are starting to make a big comeback. When the NHL 3rd jerseys were released last year, you may have noticed that a lot of the jerseys werent necessarily new, but rather retro hockey jerseys from years past. Vintage hockey jerseys in the NHL began their latest popularity run when the Outdoor Winter Classics started. In the first outdoor game, the Edmonton Oilers and Montreal Canadians played in Edmonton. Worn that day were Vintage Montreal Canadians jerseys and vintage Edmonton Oilers jerseys.
The next Winter Classic saw the Penguins play the Sabers. In that game, you saw the Pittsburgh Penguins vintage blue jerseys and the Buffalo Sabers vintage hockey jerseys. The next year it was the Red Wings against the Blackhawks donning their retro hockey jerseys. This last year we watched a couple of Eastern Conference teams duke it out, wearing vintage Philadelphia Flyers jerseys and vintage Boston Bruins hockey jerseys.
I am sure this tradition will roll on, especially now that a lot of teams are wearing vintage 3rd hockey jerseys. Check out a few of them below.
