Canucks reveal when they'll finally wear their reverse retro jerseys

Jan 29 2021, 10:44 am

Canucks fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to see the new “reverse retro” jerseys on the ice this season.

Unveiled in November, the Canucks’ reverse retros are a new twist on an old alternate uniform worn by the Markus Naslund/Todd Bertuzzi era Canucks in the early 2000s. With new colours, the new gradient jersey features more green than any other Canucks jersey before it.

The Canucks will be spicing things up next month. The team announced today that they’ll wear the new uniforms exclusively during a four-game homestand, from February 19 to 25 against the Winnipeg Jets and the Edmonton Oilers.

  • Fri, Feb 19 vs Winnipeg
  • Sun, Feb 21 vs Winnipeg
  • Tue, Feb 23 vs Edmonton
  • Thu, Feb 25 vs Edmonton

All 31 NHL teams will wear “reverse retro” jerseys at some point this season. The Oilers have also agreed to wear their reverse retros on their trip to Vancouver, as their new uniforms are primarily white, and thus won’t clash with the blue and green Canucks look.
