Third Jerseys Staying Put

According to, the Buffalo Sabres third jersey will not be changing after this season.

“The Sabres will hang onto the alternate sweater they introduced this season as part of their 40th anniversary celebration.

Though nothing is changing, I thought it worth mentioning here as some thought perhaps the jersey would be worn only this season and then retired. In fact, it seems the royal blue will hang around at least one more year. Possibly longer.

Also, the jersey does feature the throwback Sabres logo with their founding year, 1970, set inside. This was used as the team’s 40th anniversary mark but it’s not specific to this year, which means it’s likely to stay on the sweater.

It goes without saying, but Buffalo’s home and road uniforms will also stay the same for 2011-12. Overall, this might be the best set of sweaters in the NHL. And it’s all because they’re paying attention to their past.”

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
