Buffalo Sabres | Press Release
The new Sabres new uniform, unveiled on September 16, 2006, takes its inspiration from the original Sabres uniform (1971-96) and second uniform (1996-2005). The design was a collaborative effort between the Sabres and Reebok International.
The new "blue and gold" colors have been altered to a deeper navy blue and richer gold that have a greater visual impact both in person and on television broadcasts.
Silver accents and a revised "B-Sabre" logo were carried over from the team's second uniform.
Unique in the NHL, the new uniforms have player numbers on the front of the jersey and have been designed utilizing the most advanced material available from Reebok.
Buffalo's new alternate jersey is the original blue uniform from the 1970's, which was unveiled at a press conference in late July. Click here to view that announcement
