It has been teased on social media for the past week or so and on Monday, the Habs officially unveiled their new Reverse Retro uniform that will be used for select games during the upcoming season.
Every team will be using one of these next season with the sweaters being designed to reflect unique and special moments in each franchise’s history.
For the Canadiens, the colour is from their inaugural sweater from 1909 and ties in with the uniform style from 1974 through 2007. The number 76 is marked in the neckline, tying in with the first season that the Habs won the Stanley Cup with that uniform set along with the year that they posted a league record in points.
There is no word yet on how often the uniform will be worn next season as the schedule has not yet been released.
