2009 Winter Classic Jersey’s (2009-2011)

The words “Chicago Blackhawks” and “outdoor game” just doesn’t fit. They have a losing record (0-4) in the Winter Classic, with their only outdoor win coming in the Stadium Series (1-2) against the Penguins in 2014.

1-6 isn’t the ideal record. One certain thing is the great jersey’s they tend to produce for outdoor games.

In 2009, 2014, and 2019, the Blackhawks hosted games. They wore black jersey’s in both, with 2009 being my favorite. It’s a jersey that still fits today and could make a comeback at any time.

This jersey brings back the logo from the early days of the Blackhawks, the same with the style. It adds red to the jersey, something the team didn’t have in their first few seasons.

Their most recent outdoor game saw the Blackhawks wearing the same jerseys as their second season in the league. They just touched it up a little bit. What the Blackhawks do best when creating a jersey is looking back at their history to decide where to start. So far, they’ve done well.

Still, it doesn’t give the same, sleek look like the black jerseys, so I give it an ‘A’ rating, instead of an A+.
