Sabres skills contest jerseys steal the show

Did the Sabres drop another hint they’re headed back to the royal blue with the skills contest jerseys?

Sara Schmidle - Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres hosted their skills contest yesterday. It was unfortunate the event went on without Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart. However, much fun was had as the Sabres players showed of their skills in front of the fans.

That competition itself was cool, but let’s chat about those jerseys the players wore during the event.

Fans of the club have been clamoring for them to go back to the royal blue color in their sweater. There’s been chatter that could be their plan for their 50th anniversary third jersey next season, but that remains to be seen.

Having said that, the Sabres may have dropped a big hint that it is indeed their plan to move back to the royal blue with these jerseys. They used this event as a way to gauge the fan reaction on these type of uniforms and color schemes.

Most people were big fans of the sweaters and now we’ll wait and see if the Sabres make the right decision.
