Sabres fans react to the return of royal blue jerseys

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Sabres don't start their preseason schedule for another few weeks but on Thursday, they gave fans a preview of what's to come.

The Sabres posted the following message to their twitter page, announcing that the team will go back to royal blue during the 2020-2021 season. Fans said they were excited about the nostalgic look.

"I'm not a huge fan of the dark jerseys anyway, there's too many teams with that color, so I really like it going back to the classics roots," said Sabres fan Luke Szudzik.

This year, they're going gold and will reveal their 50th anniversary uniform Friday at 10 a.m.

The Sabres open the regular season on October 3rd in Pittsburgh. Their home opener is two days later on Saturday.
