Blackhawks and Blues unveil throwback Winter Classic uniforms
The NHL’s outdoor games are becoming less and less of a rarity these days, but fans typically enjoy tuning in to get a glimpse of the breathtaking outdoor settings and the oft-gorgeous jerseys created for the events.
This season’s NHL Winter Classic will see the Blackhawks travel to St. Louis to take on the Blues at Busch Stadium on Jan. 2, 2017. On Wednesday morning, both teams unveiled the sweaters that they’ll be wearing for the occasion.
They’re throwbacks, and they’re very pretty.

The Blackhawks jersey is inspired by and will pay homage to the team’s uniforms from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Meanwhile, the Blues’ uniform is a recreation of the club’s look from its inaugural season in 1967-68.
Both uniforms are pretty fantastic and should create a very visually pleasant matchup when they take the ice in January.
