If you’re counting down the days until outdoor hockey season, we have 54 to go until the 2019 Winter Classic between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks  (Jan. 1, 1 p.m. ET, NBC) at Notre Dame Stadium.

Thursday is the start of the hype for the game as jerseys that will be worn in that game will be unveiled.

While the Blackhawks will show off their later on Thursday, the Bruins got things started with their vintage looks.

The jerseys are a throwback to what the team wore during the 1930s and similar to what we saw a few times during the 1991-92 NHL season. The ‘B’ logo on the front is made from “a two-layer felt application,” giving it a bit of that varsity jacket feeling.

In a nod to Notre Dame, the inside collar features six shamrocks with the years of each of the Bruins’ six Stanley Cup titles.

The Blackhawks jersey is expected to be from a similar era and be a black jersey will some white striping, as Icethetics revealed in September.
