The Buffalo Sabres have unveiled a special jersey commemorating the team's 50th anniversary.
The team will be wearing its new Golden Jersey for 13 home games this upcoming season. The sweater is a white jersey with a gold and navy blue Sabres crest. Starting in the 2020-21 season, the team will return to royal blue as its primary color from its current navy blue, a move many fans have clamored for, for years.
Five stripes representing the franchise's fives decades are embroidered on the sleeves and on the jersey's bottom. The inner neckline features logos from throughout the team's history. The complete uniform features white gloves and navy pants.
The jersey will be on display outside the Sabres Store at KeyBank Center on Saturday during Fan Fest on Saturday. Presale orders are being taken now and the jersey will be available for purchase at store as of September 17.
