The expected new jersey for the Canucks has been leaked on Twitter.
It was first tweeted by @silverwinger77 in reply to a jersey design from S7 Design, and then was later confirmed by Chris Creamer with Sportslogo.net to in fact be the new Canucks threads.
The new home jersey is below:
The most obvious and expected change is the removal of “VANCOUVER” from above the whale logo. At first glance, it looks a little odd, mostly because the wordmark has been part of the logo since 2007 but it does create an overall cleaner look to the jersey. The other change is the shoulder logos, which create a more modernized look of the classic stick-in-rink logo.
The away jersey hasn’t been leaked yet but it’s expected the will be the exact same design but probably with the stick-in-rink logo being blue themed.
The Canucks will wear four different jerseys next season as they celebrate their 50th year in the NHL. The first two were the home and away with changes, which has now come to life, a throwback skate jersey, and then a brand new third jersey. At this time, there have been no leaks on what that third jersey will be.
It’s expected that the organization will formally release the new home and away jerseys prior to the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.
