NHL TEAM NEWS & NOTES: THIRD JERSEYS ARE INTRODUCED
Published December 1, 1997
The Blues will introduce a third jersey on January 31 at the Kiel Center, and the team "has already received [NHL] approval for it to become their official home jersey next season," according to Dave Luecking of the ST. LOUIS POST- DISPATCH. The Blues will also wear redesigned road jerseys next season. The new uniforms, designed by Fleishman- Hillard's Buck Smith, will replace the current ones that were unveiled in '94. Navy blue will be featured in the new look, replacing red, and complimenting the "team's royal blue base." The team will wear solid navy pants, with gloves and socks to match (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 11/27). Also in St. Louis, Bernie Miklasz wrote that he is "thankful" for Blues President Mark Sauer and Senior VP Jim Woodcock: "Sanity is restored, ticket prices are down, and Blues hockey is making a comeback" (POST-DISPATCH, 11/27). FLYERS: The Flyers introduced their third jersey on Friday, which will be worn 14 times this season, including eight times on Fox and two on ESPN. Flyers COO Ron Ryan said that the team "didn't promote" the product, because Nike "failed to meet" the November 4 delivery date to the public. The new jersey was on sale Friday at the CoreStates Center, and Ryan "expects it to be in retail outlets next week" (Tim Panaccio, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/30). LIGHTNING: In Fort Lauderdale, Dave Joseph reported that Atlanta business exec David Berkman is the leading candidate to buy the Lightning (SUN-SENTINEL, 11/30).
