Thrashers Unveil Third Jerseys

The Thrashers unveiled their new alternate uniforms during the 2008 Face Off Event on Wednesday, Oct. 8, at Philips Arena. The annual event, which is open to season ticket-holders, is a celebration of the start of the Thrashers 2008-09 Regular Season, which begins on Friday, Oct. 10, at Philips Arena when they host the Washington Capitals at 7:30 p.m.

The new alternate uniforms, which will debut on Nov. 14 when the Thrashers host the Carolina Hurricanes, will be worn 14 times throughout the season, including the team’s 10 subsequent home games against Southeast Division opponents and the team’s four remaining Sunday games at Philips Arena.

“We are very excited to introduce our players and coaching staff to the season ticket-holders that will be cheering for them all season long at Philips Arena,” said Executive Vice President and General Manager Don Waddell. “This event is also a great opportunity to allow our most passionate fans to get a glimpse of our new-look uniforms first-hand.”

Fans will be required to pay for the jersey at the time of the pre-order and they will be available for pickup on 11/14.

The NHL Third Jersey Program began in 1997 as a ability for Clubs to explore alternate colors and identities outside their current home and away jerseys. The third jersey program was placed on hold for the 2007-08 season resulting from the League-wide launch of the RBK Edge uniform system.

This will be the second third jersey in the Atlanta Thrashers history. The current home jersey design was unveiled during the 2003-04 season as their third jersey. Resulting from the overall success and popularity of the third jersey, the Thrashers re-designated the uniform to their primary home jersey in 2006-07. Currently six (6) NHL Teams current home or away jerseys in the NHL started as a third jersey design.
