The New York Rangers unveiled their special Winter Classic jerseys Monday afternoon on their UStream account live from Central Park in New York City. The 2012 Winter Classic is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Jan 2. in Philadelphia. The Winter Classic is an outdoor hockey event which has been played by NHL teams since 2008.
This year's game features the Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers at Citizens' Bank Park (the home venue of MLB's Philadelphia Phillies) in Philadelphia. The Rangers have never played in the Winter Classic. The Flyers appeared in the Winter Classic in 2010 against the Boston Bruins at Fenway Park. The Flyers lost 2-1 in overtime to the Bruins.
Rangers captain Ryan Callahan as well as Brandon Dubinsky, Henrik Lundqvist and Dan Girardi appeared to model the jerseys during the reveal today. During the reveal, Lundqvist announced that he will also don a goaltender's helmet that will be specially made just for the Winter Classic. Pictures of the Rangers' jersey after the jump.
