The wait for a new alternate jersey is almost over, as the Bruins have confirmed that they will unveil their new third jersey during a season-ticket holders event at the World Trade Center in the Seaport on Sunday.

First confirmed to 98.5 The Sports Hub by Bruins president Cam Neely in October, the jersey will be unveiled at an event expected to feature the entire team, and will be the team's first full-time alternate jersey since the NHL made the switch from Reebok to Adidas in 2017. (Warning: Fans of the 'Pooh Bear' jersey will be disappointed.)

There's hardly any mystery here, as photos of the new alternate jersey were leaked earlier this past summer. This sweater, if it indeed is what the Bruins roll with, seems like a mix of what the team wore in their last two Winter Classic appearances, with the big 'block' B displayed as the primary logo opposed to the iconic 'spoked B' the team has featured since 1948.

The Bruins have had two different designated alternate sweaters over the last decade, beginning with the 'blackout' jersey introduced in 2008, and continuing with the 2016 Winter Classic jersey serving as the team's official alternate in 2016-17.
