Update 10/13 @ 7:31pm: It looks like there will be no new jersey debuted tonight.
A rumor has been making it’s way through the ranks that the Lakers will be debuting a new jersey tonight for GLSW.
This is supported by the fact that last year the same happened. Players hit the ice in throwbacks to the 1970s with their stylized ‘Soo Lakers’ on an offwhite base. These were later used during Pink in the Rink weekend and auctioned off.
If this rumor does prove true, then I would expect the same to happen this year. Although there is no information about what the jerseys will look like, I feel like it will be another throwback. I doubt it will be a set of the goods that were used in the 2010-2011 season as they are recent, though the goods used in the late 90’s could be a possibility.
However, this writer would love to see a throwback to the 1980s-1990s uniforms, when the Lakers won their three championships.
I do doubt it will be a pink uniform. But we will have to wait and see until either warmups or when the teams hit the ice before the first.
Game 1 against Michigan Tech starts tonight, 10/13, at 7:37pm
