NHLThe Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings have unveiled their jerseys for the 2014 NHL Winter Classic. The jerseys were unveiled on Apr. 7 at a press conference at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

This season’s outdoor NHL Winter Classic will take place at The Big House on the campus of the University of Michigan. The NHL hopes to set a world record with an attendance of up to 110,000 for the Jan. 1, 2014 game.

“The history of the teams’ cross-border rivalry, the nobility of The Big House and the growing tradition of the NHL Winter Classic will raise the anticipation for this event to new heights,” Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We are delighted to offer our fans a spectacle at which the energy will be unmatched and the demand for tickets will be unprecedented. For anyone involved in any way — as a player, a coach, an official, a fan — this NHL Winter Classic will be a truly memorable hockey moment.”

Both NHL jerseys will feature a vintage look. Along with the jerseys that will be worn by the two teams in the NHL game, there are also two alternate (yet still vintage) jerseys that will be worn by the Red Wings and Maple Leafs in the alumni game.

“In addition to representing a dramatic new step in the evolution of the NHL Winter Classic, the Hockeytown Winter Festival reflects the love Mike and Marian Ilitch have for the City of Detroit and its hockey fans,” Commissioner Bettman added. “The scheduled activities will bring tens of thousands of fans downtown to connect with the NHL Winter Classic excitement, to enjoy the Festival experience and to share their passion for the sport.”
