The Edmonton Oilers will be bringing back the Todd MacFarlane “Spawn” jerseys from the early 2000s this season, but with a twist.
Tom Gazzola posted a sneak peek of the new version of the classic third uniform on Twitter on Tuesday that shows how the Oilers are maintaining a lot of the original style while adding some orange to match the team’s current look…
The original version of the jerseys, which were worn by the Oilers between the 2001-02 and 2006-07 seasons, featured a dark blue body with white and silver stripes along with a silver and blue comet logo crest.
The image that Handsome Tom shared shows that the silver stripes on the arm have been changed from silver to orange. Also, the oil drops in the comet on the shoulder patches and main crest have been changed from dark blue to orange, it appears.
What do you think, Nation? Did you like these jerseys when the Oilers wore them in the 2000s? Do you like that they’re bringing them back? Should they have just been identical copies, or is orange a nice addition to the look? Let us know!
