Photo Diary: Heritage Jersey Release
Today was the big day, the day the much anticipated Senators heritage jersey was finally unveiled and available for purchase. Many were very excited to get their hands on the jersey that is clearly the most popular since the original white home jersey worn in 1992. As always for those of you who couldn't be there, I will provide the latest version of the photo diary. More pics after the jump.
Here's the first pic where you can clearly see the whole uniform and I have to say it looks pretty awesome. Interesting to note that the Sens have yet to officially cut anyone yet, so guys like Kaspars Daugavins, Robin Lehner and Mike Hoffman amongst others are modeling the new look too.
Here's the what the goalie setup will look like, modeled by Zoolander, errr I mean Craig Anderson. Looks sharp, especially with his clean and simple goalie gear. Let's hope his play matches his style this season.
A close up of the new digs, not too shabby right? Jared Cowen sure looks good in a Sens uni and Brian Lee still looks like a 15 year old. These MAY be our best uni's to date in my opinion. I love them.
Yes, each one of those is a boxed up heritage jersey for season ticket holder's. That is a lot of jerseys.
Though not announced yet, here are the 2 assistant captains for the year (MAJOR SCOOP lol). Chris Phillips has been one for quite a while and with him re-upping, it was a given he'd rock the A, but Spezza looks to have a permanent A for the first time. I have to say, it suits him. I'm looking for a big year from Giggles.
The wall of new heritage jerseys featuring all the Senators players. It looks really sharp all together like that doesn't it? It sure is nice to finally see the finished product turn out great after so many months of speculation. I know many of you, myself included were curious about the color/font of the name and numbers but they came out nice too I think. I had only ever seen the finished product a few months ago without any numbering or lettering, so I'm glad it looks proper.
And finally, an up close and personal view of the entire new heritage uniform. My 2 cents, they couldn't have done a better job producing it. It looks awesome to wear and even better on the players. I predict in a few years it will become out permanent home jersey due to it's original look and fan popularity. My only complaint is the players are all rocking the jerseys with the All Star Game patch, while the one's for sale were blank. Could have had some with and some without in my opinion, but otherwise well executed all around.
As someone tweeted me, this jersey just seems to scream Ottawa, and that's a good thing.
Thoughts on the new jersey?
