When the Blackhawks hit the ice against the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 1, the venue will have a different look, and so will their jerseys.
As part of the NHL's Stadium Series, the Blackhawks unveiled a new jersey design they will wear when they play Pittsburgh at Soldier Field in their first outdoor game since play at Wrigley Field in 2009.
Each jersey features chrome-treated logo designs inspired by the NHL shield. The chrome crest was developed using new technology that fuses print and embroidery and allows logos to be displayed as a high-resolution image incorporated into the crest, according to a release by the club. As a result, the design reduces the weight of the crest, creating in a lighter jersey. Numbering on the back of the jersey is enlarged and sleeve numbers are angled to improve visibility in outdoor venues.
Fans can pre-order the jerseys by calling 800-GO-HAWKS or by visiting any official Blackhawks Store location.
