The Buffalo Sabres are bringing back the jerseys they wore for the 2018 Winter Classic.

The Sabres announced Wednesday the team will wear the uniforms for three home games this season.

Those games include:

  • Thursday, February 8 against the New York Islanders
  • Monday, February 19 against the Washington Capitals
  • Wednesday, April 4 against the Ottawa Senators (Fan Appreciation Night)

The February 19 game will also feature a Winter Classic-themed jersey towel giveaway.

The team's annual "Jersey Off My Back" promotion returns on Fan Appreciation Night. Select fans at the final home game of the season will receive the Winter Classic-style jerseys worn by the players that night.

The uniform combines design concepts from the franchise's early years with modifications to the team's current logo and elements from the team's 40th anniversary jersey.
