January 1st, 2019 brings in the 11th annual Winter Classic but it will be the 10th contest due to there not being a Winter Classic in 2013 because of the NHL lockout that postponed the match-up between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings to 2014.
This year’s contest will pit the Boston Bruins against the Chicago Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana.
Today, both teams unveiled the jerseys that they will wear for this contest.
First, with the Boston Bruins.
The look the Boston Bruins are going with is a nod to the franchises of the 1930s.
The look is similar to the 1932-36 and will make used of the iconic Spoked-B logo that the Bruins have had for decades.
On the inside neckline has six shamrocks with the years of their Stanley Cup championships in the shamrocks.
Next we have the Chicago Blackhawks.
The jersey they will wear is a nod to the 1934 team, the first time the Blackhawks were crowned Stanley Cup champions.
The slashes on the neckline represent the classic hashmarks at Notre Dame Stadium and the years between the slashes represent the six Stanley Cup championships that the Blackhawks have won.
