The newly named Arizona Coyotes announced their game night promotions schedule for the coming season and we'll get a blast from the past in early March. On March 5, a Thursday game against the Vancouver Canucks, the Coyotes will celebrate "Throwback Night."
From the Coyotes website:
Celebrate the Coyotes history in the Valley of the Sun and watch the team play in one of the franchise’s original uniforms. The first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive a throwback Jeremy Roenick Bobble Head courtesy of Gila River Casinos. That's right - the Coyotes will wear one of the original jerseys they used when the team first moved to the desert from Winnipeg in 1996. We are bigger fans of the current logo and jersey design the team uses (
we ranked the Coyotes logo No. 2 in the NHL), but we can't wait to see these old jerseys back in action - as long as it's for one night only.
Although, we were surprised how many of you liked and supported the Picasso Coyote in our logo rankings this summer. The team hasn't yet said which jersey they'll wear. When the franchise first landed in Arizona NHL
home teams wore white, but now they wear dark jerseys. And who knows, maybe they'll wear these hilariously awful ones:
Which one do you hope they wear?
