New Third Jersey

I've been hearing rumblings on twitter about it but I wonder if there is any legitimacy to it.

A poster who seems to have inside information said they're going to be unveiled at the home opener on Tuesday.

Really? That's awesome.

I have no clue what direction they'd want to go in though... I wouldnt think it would be another throwback, but at the same time I have a feeling they'd keep the orange and blue over any copper and blue designs.

But will we be keeping the traditional home jersey?

This team doesn't have a very good track record with jerseys after the originals, in my opinion. I'm pessimistic to say the least.

They will.

It's a third jersey. They'll wear it the odd time. It won't replace the current home or away jerseys.

Probably a reverse of the current home. All orange is blue and all blue is orange. Although I secretly hope the Oil man is on the front if this thing exists.

I'm kind of hoping we don't go for the pure orange look; it seems way too bright.

I'd rather they take the Capitals' approach and use a white jersey as their thirds. The white Alberta Oilers jersey would be excellent imo.

Maybe it will be like OKC's new third jersey with a bigger oil drop and oilers written in white and outlibed in blue above it. I'd like that.

Eh, I'd prefer some variety.

It would be a huge shocker if there is a new jersey though. Basically nothing has been announced or anything.

Usually icethetics.info is my go to site for Jersey information.

Love those jerseys! Should do them with updated colours. Like the brighter blue and throw some orange in there.

Bring back the mechanical sperm. Those were awesome. Do it with the style of jerseys we used back before we used the Reebok pyjama jersey.

Edgy, 90s Oilers hockey style with the comet would be awesome.

Yea but I don't like when classic teams change their look. Most classic teams don't do that.

I'd be all for this, if it said Edmonton Oilers.

I hate the jerseys that just have team names on them, however, those Avs ones are really nice, I think it is because of the colour scheme IMO.

Those jerseys with the citys name written on them are some of the worst.

It's pretty rare for a jersey unveiling to go this long without any real publicity. Usually teams have to submit designs for a style guide that is given to retailers and the like before the season starts. Another board I visit has users who have access to style guides and it just showed the Oilers having a home jersey and an away jersey. It has been rumoured that in 13-14 the Oilers were supposed to have a new alternate jersey.

But, I wonder if the Oilers pushed the NHL to have the jersey a season soon to surprise the fans because of the lockout. That wouldn't surprise me one bit... and really, if that is the case, a nice little financial gift to the organization as well, as I'm sure the appetite for NHL merchandise is high right now coming out of the lockout.
