The Buffalo Sabres Tease New Jersey Release
The Buffalo Sabres gave us a little tease of what their third jersey for the 2022 season will look like, and fans from the 90s are going to love it.
It's interesting that traditionally, jerseys are called sweaters in the NHL, but when the Sabres referred to their new design, they called it a jersey. Anyway...in the NHL, teams are allowed to have a home jersey, an away jersey, and a third (alternate) jersey.
While the Sabres didn't give it away entirely, they gave fans a huge tease on social media today. It's been a rumor for awhile now, but as of today, it looks as though they've taken a step closer to bringing back "The Goat Head" jersey.
We are going to have to wait until November to see what it will actually look like, but it looks like not only will the black and red be coming back for a few games...so will the goat head.
It was a drastic change from what Sabres fans had become accustomed to when they changed the color scheme completely in the 90s from the blue and gold to black and red. They changed from the buffalo with sabres around it to the goat head.
Some loved it...some hated it. But at least it wasn't the slug that they moved to after the goat head.
