NHL players will soon be wearing the new jerseys from the Philadelphia Flyers, which have a new look with white lettering and a white background.
The jersey is the first of the new uniforms to debut for the 2016-17 season, and it’s also the first in the league since the Flyers rebranded in 2009.
“I’m excited to wear the jersey,” said defenseman Ryan White.
“It’s a great way to start the year and it’ll be a great opportunity for me to get a feel for the new look and play on the team that’s in front of me.”
The jersey will be the first jersey to feature the Flyers’ new crest on the front and back of the jersey, along with the Philadelphia Phillies logo.
The Philadelphia Flyers’ logo will also be added on the jersey.
The new Flyers look will be unveiled Friday.
The Flyers will also have a number of other changes to their roster, including the return of left wing Michael Raffl and left wing Alex Lyon to the lineup, as well as defenseman Wayne Simmonds, defenseman Michael Del Zotto, goaltender Michael Delzotto, and forwards Steve Mason, Mark Streit, and Nick Cousins.
White, who has been on the shelf since suffering a concussion in a game against the New York Islanders in November, said he has been looking forward to wearing the jersey for a while, even after it became apparent that he would not play in the preseason.
White said he didn’t really want to play the preseason until he felt comfortable enough to play in preseason.
“The one thing that I really want is to play my game and play a big role in the team’s success and the success of the team,” White said.
“I feel that if I’m healthy and playing well in training camp, I feel like that’s the right time to wear this jersey.”
White said the new Philadelphia Flyers jersey will feature a different logo and number on the back of each sleeve.
The new jersey will cost $50.
The Flyers will wear it in their home opener on Friday.
