Matt Burke imagined this jersey match-up as part of the NHL Centennial in 2017. But since the past is the past, what if we looked forward? In six short years from now, the Chicago Blackhawks will celebrate their own 100th anniversary. Could you imagine them and the Montreal Canadiens in an outdoor extravaganza wearing something like this? It would be a sight to see.
In fact, with several teams zeroing on a hundred years over the coming decade, maybe the Centennial Classic should be brought back as a series. We’ll see more concepts along those lines from Matt in the coming weeks and months—including an All-Star uniform set you have to see to believe!
