Third Jersey News

One of my sources indicates (I love that – makes it sound really mysterious, eh?) that the Flyers new third jersey will be worn on-ice for the first time on Friday, November 28 in a game against Carolina.  Retailers will get the jersey on Wednesday, December 3.  It’s definite that the jersey will be the orange one they wore in the 1970’s, with the same numbering (white outlined in black on the back and orange outlined in black on the sleeves).  The traditional logo will be on the front.  Only question is whether the white nameplate with black letters or orange nameplate with white letters will be used. 

If this source is correct, then so much for my earlier prediction that they would debut the jersey in the pre-season game against Carolina at the old Spectrum, which will be in its last season.  That would have been too cool.

  1. I wonder why they’re waiting so long. I guess they want to hit the Christmas/Hanukkah gift rush.

    You’re right. The game at the Spectrum would have been the time to debut the retro style jersey. Perhaps a missed opportunity?
