The Columbus Blue Jackets will be unveiling their new 3rd jersey on Wednesday, and the team will debut the new sweater on the ice on Friday agains Detroit. The displayed concept drawings have fallen into my hands, represented as being one of the concepts under consideration. So, can’t say that this IS the new third jersey, but it is an intriguing hint as to direction, in any event.
Certainly the design is evocative of the “old school” kind of charm that rumors had suggested was in the offing, and prominently displays “The Cannon”, which is rapidly becoming a signature image(and sound) for the franchise. If this proves to be the design, Columbus could do far worse.
Again, can’t say that this is IT — but it seems to fit the rumors. Tomorrow, the suspense will be over, and we can return to focusing on hockey!
Fan of hockey at all levels, with focus on the Blue Jackets, Miami RedHawks and the business side of the game. I try to bring a rational, even-handed analysis to my writing, wtih just a touch of snark. I use my legal background to bring some more insight on the business side. Love family, travel, hockey, golf and curling.
