The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team will debut its new third jersey on Sunday, Nov. 24, during its game against the Detroit Red Wings at First Niagara Center at 5 p.m. The third jersey will be worn for 10 Sabres home games in 2013-14 and will be available for purchase at the Sabres Store beginning Nov. 24.

The third jersey, which was revealed via the team’s social media platforms in September, was designed by the Sabres’ creative team in collaboration with Reebok. Challenged by Sabres ownership to use gold as the primary jersey color for the first time in team history, the design team looked at jerseys and uniforms from across the full spectrum of professional sports for inspiration. The result was a two-tone jersey with gold as the primary color on the front and navy blue on the back. This design concept is believed to be a first for the NHL.

A newly designed Buffalo Sabres wordmark appears on the players’ pant leg as well as just below the neckline on the main jersey, right above the Sabres’ traditional crest on the front of the jersey. Additionally, a unique font and number art were designed by Reebok and were inspired by the tips of actual sabers. The all-new font is used for the jersey numbers as well as players’ names. Captain and alternate captain insignia incorporate crossed sabers as design elements and the patches have been moved from the traditional spot on the chest to the shoulder of the jersey.

Below is the full schedule of games the Sabres will wear the third jerseys in 2013-14:

  • November 24 vs. Detroit Red Wings
