Ducks announce third jersey debut: Nov. 26.

The Ducks will unveil their new third jerseys when they take the ice against the Chicago Blackhawks on November 26, the quasi-traditional day-after-Thanksgiving afternoon game.

The plan is for the players to wear to the traditional home uniform during pregame warmups, then wear the third jersey when they exit down the tunnel prior to the first period. No press conference, no fashion summit — an understated debut, if there ever were one.

The third jersey will be worn an additional 14 times throughout the season, for a total of 15 games in all. The official release on the Ducks’ Web site indicates that “The third jersey will put an alternative spin on the traditional colors and logo, also paying homage to the club’s history.” Otherwise there is no mention of what it will look like, though there is mention of the team’s history of third jerseys — including this one.
