The Boston Bruins unveiled their 2016 Winter Classic uniforms on Saturday.

The Bruins will be wearing these new jerseys when they take on the Montreal Canadiens at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Jan. 1.

In a release sent out by the team, the Bruins mentioned where the idea for the jersey came from:

To celebrate this historic rivalry matchup, Reebok designers looked to the early days of the Bruins franchise. The inspiration for the design of the full uniform and the crest generally came from the first uniform ever worn by the Bruins during their inaugural season in 1924, under legendary coach Art Ross.

The striping pattern recalls this original uniform, but has been updated in the Bruins current identity colors of Black & Gold, connecting the past and current Bruins color identity.
