Tuesday afternoon, the NHL released the jerseys that will be worn by the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators during the NHL 100 Classic outdoor game. This special game, different from the Stadium Series and Winter Classic, will celebrate the NHL’s 100th year of existence. The game will be played at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa on December 16.
The NHL and Adidas took the history of these Canadian teams into consideration for the jersey design. The Montreal Canadiens franchise holds the record for most Stanley Cup appearances (34) and wins (24) throughout the time in the NHA and NHL. The original Ottawa Senators franchise played in the NHL from 1917 until 1934 and won 11 Stanley Cups. The current franchise rejoined the NHL as an expansion team in 1992.
