Canucks bring back 'Black Skate' jersey for 50th season
The Vancouver Canucks will kick it old school in their semicentennial campaign.
Three jerseys will be added or tweaked for 2019-20 when the club celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Firstly, the team will once again use its much beloved "Black Skate" sweaters.
The Canucks will don the popular duds for three games next season, according to NHL.com's Dan O'Leary.
For 10 contests during 2019-20, Vancouver will also sport new "Heritage" uniforms that hark back to the 1970s.
Lastly, the primary jersey will no longer feature the city name, and its logo will be enlarged.
The Canucks wore various versions of the "Black Skate" jerseys from 1985 to 1997, including during their run to the Stanley Cup Final in 1994.
