Heritage Classic Logo/Jersey release date?

Has there been any information of a possible logo/release date for the Heratage Classic?
True North has a track record of making fans wait excruciatingly long for reveils...
As its in October I can't see a wait till season opener?
I've got my visa warmed up and ready to spend!

Using the Vancouver vs. Ottawa game as reference.

General public ticket info released (on sale Thursday, Dec. 5) and jerseys released Nov. 28, 2013.

Game March 2, 2014.

The game here is October 23rd, 2016. Perhaps jerseys some time in July. It would be nice to coincide it with the draft or July 1.

Season Ticket Holders have yet to be sent any information on tickets.

Its always possible they have the jersey ready for june 24th at the draft many teams like to release new jerseys there.

This has nothing to do with TNSE. The NHL controls everything about this game. Expect more info in june once the playoffs are over. After all It's a process

Teams don't release special jerseys there though. The Heritage classic jersey is different than a new regular jersey.

I'd expect mid or late July. The league won't want to distract from the draft or free agency. Let the hype machine ramp back up when not much else is happening and give them plenty of time to sell jerseys before the game.

Building excitement is understandable... But you would think there would be some sort of urgency to do the reveil without any leaked photos. In this day of everyone having a cell phone camera /social media there is a real danger of someone in the chain snapping a quick photo and posting it before a official announcement taking away some of the thunder...

The last herritage classic was held on March 2. The NHL revealed the Jerseys and ticket onsale info on the same day (nov 28) Approximately 3 months before the game. If they follow the same formula it should be mid July.

Don't know if I'll be able to get/afford a ticket, but I definitely will be getting a Scheifele heritage jersey if he is signed to a nice long term deal.

Planning on going to the game (even though I'll have to fly in from Edmonton) and almost certainly going to get a jersey, but I'm torn - do I get a current player like Scheifele or Byfuglien, or since there's also the legends game... do I get me a nice Hawerchuk or Selanne jersey?

Isn't that how the Jets logo got released?

Some courier opened a box of Jets merchandise and took a picture.

Yup. A pic of the logo got released, and so suddenly the Jets just started selling merchandise before they were ready to.

I believe the courier was fired.

Yeah, I'm afraid I'll be exactly the same. At least it'll be nice to get something a little different going forward and will give the family some new ideas for Christmas, birthdays, etc. I imagine we'll see some heritage Budweiser as well.

That would be an excellent time to unveil the new 3rds. It would make that day even better for us.

Just warning ya - most / all winter or heritage classic jerseys are not third jerseys - they are special one-off jerseys worn just the one time.

Jerseys like this:



and this



never went on to become third jerseys.

What are the Jets going to do? Nobody knows...

Vancouver wore those jerseys more than once. I believe Ottawa did also.

But they were not adopted as "third jerseys"

Ottawa has a very similar looking 3rd jersey to that Winter Classic one. And the Canucks wore those burgandy jerseys at other times, not just the Heritage Classic (maybe just that one season though...they were hideous too - those beige hockey pants? Man...).

But yeah, the trend seems to make real old-timey alternates for stadium games and not necessarily keep them around.

That's fine though. Makes the event more special and eventually we get another 3rd jersey.

Vancouver and Ottawa reached far back into their city's pre-NHL experience though (and Calgary just made up some goofy old-looking jersey). Chipman was very clear - the Jets unis will closely match what the team initially wore in the WHA. And that look may be more likely to eventually become a third jersey.

We just don't know. I just wanted to caution people that whatever we get may not be a third jersey.

IIRC they openly stated that it won't be a third jersey.

FWIW, hearing the Heritage Classic info for tickets is coming out ~June 10th from NHL (via TNSE).

Heard a few other details, but won't post because its all unsubstantiated rumour and I've been dead wrong before!

Haven't heard anything on new jerseys, though.

That would fit this from May 27.

The Jets will release ticket details in a couple of weeks for the alumni game and the regular season contest between the Jets and Oilers, which will be held Oct. 23. The full schedule of events will be unveiled in August.

Some other events, likely charitable in nature and separate from the official ones, are also in the works by other organizers.

Thanks for the pic! Hard to make out the logo at that res/size. Looks a bit 'busy' at first glance. But take my money anyways!

Ah I'm guessing this isn't the actual Jets logo, but more of just a patch for the event?
