The new Jersey Devils unveiled their first third jersey Tuesday, which was designed in part by Hockey Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur.
The black jersey features the word “Jersey” across the front and includes five stripes on each shoulder to honor the five Devils players who have had their numbers retired: Ken Daneyko (No. 3), Scott Stevens (No. 4), Patrik Elias (No. 26), Scott Niedermayer (No. 27) and Brodeur (No. 30).
The Devils will wear their third jersey 13 times, starting against the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 8. Other dates will be announced Friday.
Brodeur, who played 21 seasons for Devils and has the most wins (691) and games played by a goalie (1, 266) in NHL history, deserves credit for the final look, according to New jersey senior vice president of marketing Jillian Frechette.
Among Brodeur’s personal touches were lacing at the neck, which is reflective of a goalie net.
Brodeur said a few of his former teammates have given their approvals of the new jersey.
