NY Rangers Unveil 2012 Winter Classic Jersey

The New York Rangers today unveiled the uniforms they will be wearing against the Philadelphia Flyers for the 2012 NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

The uniforms are “heritage” white with blue shoulders with red stripes featuring a version of the shield logo used from 1927-1947. Jersey numbers appear to be the same as the ones worn with the regular set just with a red trim instead of the drop-shadow.

The jerseys aren’t based off any particular jersey worn by the club during it’s history but really more a combination of several eras, it’s the jersey pattern of the current set combined with the inclusion of a shield logo based off the 1977-1978 set but using the original shield logo from the 1930s and 1940s.

The Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their Winter Classic jersey earlier, an orange and black jersey featuring heritage white stripes.

    Like it. Better than the Alt. New York jerseys.

    I’ve never liked any of the Rangers’ shield logos, but this one isn’t that bad. I do love the thick red shoulder stripes though. It’s a little different, but not distracting.

    I think the best part of the Classic is unique jerseys from back then. Its a little different, but where’s the true throwback?

    These are not bad but anything with a shield gives me the willies remembering that 77-78 debacle. I can still see john ferguson sending out the great Gilles Gratton to the net in his werewolf mask. Actually Lon Chaney Jr. Probably could have played goal better than Gratton and he may have even been dead at the time.

    Far superior to the trash script jerseys they wear. They should go back to the shield logo jerseys they had before the owner went to winnepeg
