BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — It's something Buffalo Sabres fans have been waiting for since 1996, royal blue is back!

The Sabres unveiled new royal blue jerseys Tuesday.

Last season the Sabres revealed their gold jerseys with widespread fan approval.

The Sabres wore royal blue jerseys from their start in 1970 all the way through the 1995-96 season before switching to the famous black and red 'goathead' jerseys.
