Boston Bruins Pooh Bear Jersey Return Getting Real



If a recent Sports Business Journal report is true, then the rumors of the return of the ‘Pooh Bear’ Jersey for the Boston Bruins may just be real!

Mark J. Burns is reporting that in Mid-November, the NHL and Addidas are set to unveil the ‘Reverse-Retro’ jerseys that have been circulating around social media for the past week.

There has been a strong movement that if the NHL was to implement what would be the fourth jerseys for most of the 31 league teams that the Bruins should go back to the alternate jerseys they were from the 1995-96 to 2005-06 seasons. The ‘Reverse Retro’ style would do away with the some would consider ugly, yellow base and have white be the base with the ‘Pooh Bear’ emblem.

It should be noted that San Jose Sharks Team President Jonathan Becher denied the rumors of the Sharks supposed jerseys that were leaked.

But that doesn’t mean the Sports Business Journal report isn’t accurate. If so, then what will the new Boston Bruins alternate jerseys look like. Will they be the aforementioned ‘Pooh Bear’ jerseys from what was a regrettable era of Boston Bruins hockey or could they harken back to the days when team President Cam Neely and fellow hall of famer Ray Bourque were in their primes helping the Boston Bruins contend every season in the late eighties to early nineties?

On Wednesday, the Dallas Stars unveiled their third jerseys going forward. The new-look jerseys pay homage to the Bank Of America Building in Dallas that is famous for being lit up fluorescent green.

There has been no official word from the Boston Bruins on what look they will go with for the Reverse Retros but interestingly enough, when Neely helped design the 2016 Boston Bruins Winter Classic jerseys, he made sure they were influenced by the first jerseys the Original 6 franchise every wore.

Would Neely try to do the same with the Reverse Retro?
