The Rangers will don a new third jersey in their November 17th home game against the Boston Bruins.
In September, Rangers forward Sean Avery may have accidentally leaked what the new sweater would look like on his website http://seanavery.com/. (The image was immediately removed)
The Blueshirts will celebrate their 85th anniversary as part of Heritage Week which will kick off at Rockefeller Center in New York City on November 12. After the jersey is officially unveiled at 6:30 p.m., fans can take part in an open skate with Rangers alumni from 8 p.m.-12 a.m.
The new jersey (if it is in fact the one Avery is sporting in the photo) isn’t all that different. The dark blue is a nice touch, but the Liberty alternate from yesteryear probably would go over better with fans as opposed to the New York lettering diagonally lined down the front. It looks too much like the home jersey. Not enough fun or creativity.

I'm a recent college graduate looking for a dream job covering hockey. I've been watching the New York Rangers since my grade school days of VHS and Gordon Bombay's "ducks fly together" speech. While studying journalism at Boston University (COM '10), I wrote for the Daily Free Press, the student newspaper. I worked two summers at the Staten Island Advance, my hometown newspaper, writing city news and features. I've also written CD reviews for Music-Reviewer.com. One of my favorite gigs was interning for hockey analyst extraordinaire Stan Fischler covering the Boston Bruins and attending all their home games in the 2009-2010 season. (Yes, including the crushing defeat against the Flyers in the Eastern Conference playoffs.)
