Buffalo Sabres confirm new road and third jersey designs

Sep 18, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

We actually discussed this possibility on September 8, but the Buffalo Sabres will officially sport new road jerseys as well as a new third jersey during the 2010-11 season.

Here is a shot of the new road uniform, via the Sabres PR staff.

That’s an awfully sharp, if not particularly surprising “new” design. I don’t think I’m the first person to say this by any means, but thank goodness the “Buffaslug” is gone.

Now, take a look at the new third jerseys, also from the Sabres PR staff.

I didn’t notice a few subtleties the first time around, such as the smaller version of the team’s classic “buffalo between two sabres” logo under the big “BUFFALO” and I also didn’t catch the strange number font they opted to go with. Something tells me those have some sort of strange texture, but I could be wrong there.

Either way, the Sabres’ uniforms will be the NHL’s most improved (in my opinion) going into next season. I’m delighted by the return to the classic look, but how do you feel about it? Are there any people who are secretly disappointed to see the death of the “Buffaslug”? Let us know in the comments.

    Best new wave jerseys in hockey period. The 3rd jersey is soooo sick! The Rangers could have done something like that, but they decided it would be better to bribg back the horrible new york jersey with a few different twists, it looks horrible. All teams should copy this style that Buffalo is using as a 3r jersey. Mix it up a little,

    I am gonna say that I am actually sad to see the slug go the way of the dinosaur.
    I really think someone dropped the ball on this design. Not impressed at all. But I do have respect for the new home jersey.
    Still a fan of the team ….. a new sweater wont change that.
