The Ottawa Senators are turning back the clock with their uniforms for the upcoming 2020-21 NHL season. The team announced their new jerseys ahead of the 2020 NHL Draft on Tuesday, which saw them have 13 picks.
The jersey is a new design which pays tribute to the inaugural Senators jerseys that were worn by the team from 1992 – 2007. The logo is an update of the original club logo, which was the head of a Roman general projecting from a gold circle. The updated logo uses a gold outline as opposed to red.
Here are some looks at the new jerseys. All photos are courtesy of OttawaSenators.com.
This is a pretty awesome photo of Tkachuk wearing the uniform:
“The original Senators jersey represents and connects the bond and exuberance of the young and committed teams of the past and present. It also inspires the success that was seen during the era of the original jersey with 10 of 14 season playoff appearances, including a President’s Trophy, an Eastern Conference Final, and Stanley Cup Final appearance.”
The Senators are in the middle of a rebuild and finished with just 62 points in 2019-20, second-fewest in the NHL. They have a long way to go before they will be back in the playoff picture, but going back to the retro look is an awesome step in the right direction.
