Wings, ‘Hawks to Wear “Unique” Jerseys in Winter Classic


MacLeod has posted a press release confirming that the Red Wings and the Blackhawks will wear “unique” jerseys at the Winter Classic:

The NHL Winter Classic 2009 jerseys will be unveiled during the broadcast of the game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings on Saturday, Oct. 25. WGN-TV and FSN Detroit will broadcast the game, which begins at 7:30 p.m. CT (8:30pm ET) and marks the first time the two clubs will meet this season. The Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings each will wear a unique, one-time-only jersey while playing in the NHL Winter Classic 2009 at Chicago’s historic Wrigley Field on New Year’s Day.

That they’re being described as “unique” and not “throwback” has me a little worried. I want to see both teams wear their 1991-92 alternates. I also wouldn’t mind seeing the Wings in a version of their 1926-27 sweaters.
