Edmonton Oilers Throwback Jersey

The Edmonton Oilers unveiled the throwback jersey that they will wear during 4 select games on the 2018-19 schedule to celebrate their 40th anniversary.

The Oilers brought back their classic royal blue uniform and will wear it against four former Smythe Division opponents this upcoming season.

November 29 vs. Los Angeles
December 9 vs. Calgary
December 31 vs. Winnipeg
March 7 vs. Vancouver


We also got a look at the 40th anniversary patch that will be on the right shoulder of every Oilers jersey during 2018-19.


What else is there to say about this jersey? We've seen this jersey before and it's a classic jersey that seems well liked by most. I suppose this raises the issue of which jersey you prefer as the Oilers home sweater.

I do think that the 40th anniversary logo is pretty solid. I really like the drop shadow on the numbers and how the shades of blue and orange change on the logo when it is applied to the throwback uniform.

Here's what some of the HJC writers are saying about this announcement;

"Ooh, they’re breaking out the jersey that they wore at home two seasons ago, what a great throwback...🙄" - TC (Friday)

"These should have been the jersey they wear at home now. Not that orange and navy bullshit" - Steve (Sunday)

"These thirds are honestly starting to disappoint me. 2/3 thirds of teams are terrified of doing anything other than a direct throwback, and the other third is the reason why." - Ben (Tuesday)

"If they wanted to keep these, why even change in the first place? As a fan of both orange jerseys I see a lot more potential in going with that change rather than rehashing the same jerseys because the teams was for a period successful in them! Could have at least used the far superior white one" - Sean/Jets96 (Monday)

What do you guys think about these Oilers jerseys making a return?
