The Columbus Blue Jackets will unveil their heavily-hyped new adidas sweaters on Tuesday, but a tipster handed 1st Ohio Battery photos early.
We have not been able to verify the authenticity of the photos – which we agreed not to publish at the source's request – but are passing along this mockup of the new home jersey, featuring adidas' adizero construction.
If you're hoping for a sweeping change, you may be disappointed. The only evident change, aside from the font tweaks the club recently teased, is the position of the stripe on the front of the sweater, which now runs along the chest instead of towards the collarbone.
adidas will produce home and away jerseys for the Blue Jackets this season. The team's beloved third sweater will go on hiatus until further notice.
Be sure to stick with 1st Ohio Battery for all the latest developments on the new Blue Jackets uniforms.
