The New Jersey Devils have announced the release of the organization’s first-ever third jersey. This sweater is a black-inspired/red-shadowed design that weaves together Jersey pride, Devils history and the state’s professional hockey heritage.
New Jersey will wear the sweater 13 times – as a nod to Devils captain, 22-year old Nico Hischier, who wears jersey #13 and, who along with Jack Hughes, Mackenzie Blackwood, Dougie Hamilton, Ty Smith and the rest of the developing, young core is ushering this franchise into the next era of Devils hockey.
The new sweaters will hit the ice on Third Jersey Night, December 8 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers. The remaining games will be released on November 26th, 2021.
“The organization has been playing with the same jersey for almost 40 years, and to be a part of bringing a third jersey for our fans to enjoy is going to leave a great mark,” said Martin Brodeur, New Jersey Devils Legend stated in a press release. “The new sweater is inspired by a history of hockey in the Garden State that fans may not be familiar with, and layered with design elements of Devils championship success. This is a jersey our alumni are envious of that they wished they could have played in it back in their day. People throughout the state and country know us as “Jersey,” this is our place, our home and this jersey signifies that.”
The merchandise will be available at traditional retailers starting Sunday, Nov. 28, 2021. Those who purchase the in-house “Made In Jersey” line will have proceeds from all sales, dedicated to Devils Youth Foundation- a 501(c)(3) organization, that enriches the lives of New Jersey’s youth by creating life-changing opportunities and inspiring youth in our communities through the power of sports and entertainment.
