BUFFALO, N.Y. — We've known it was coming, and now the Sabres have officially unveiled the team's golden jersey to celebrate 50 years of NHL hockey in Buffalo.
The commemorative jersey is mainly white, with the Sabres crest in gold and navy blue, as well as gold and blue stripes. The neckline also has previous team logos on it.
One other jersey change that many fans have been hoping for is also happening.
The Sabres say this is the last year that the team's current navy blue jerseys will be worn. Beginning in the 2020-2021 season, the Sabres return to royal blue as its primary color.
