Flames Third Jersey Leaked

Earlier this month the Calgary Flames new third jersey was supposedly leaked via an accidental roster update in the NHL14 video game. But now thanks to a teaser video played during Calgary’s game against the New Jersey Devils last Friday it’s easily confirmed, the leak was legit.

Flames Third Jersey NHL14 Leak

Screencaps from NHL14 show the leaked Calgary Flames third uniform (Icethetics)

The new uniform is red with black shoulders, a wordmark “Calgary” logo with the ‘flaming C’ logo across the chest in a similar fashion to the Buffalo Sabres’ late-great alternate jersey. On the shoulder is a new patch, a yellow, black and red circle showing a mountain range, a field of wheat, and a rising sun behind it all – your typical Province of Alberta scenery. There’s also a clever “CF” formed in white between the sun and mountain peak. Love it.

Calgary will unveil this new alternate sweater on October 27th.

Here’s the actual video from YouTube user clib542:

And just some screencaps from that same teaser video with comments on what they represent (you can compare and confirm for yourself using the images from the video game above):

Flames Third Jersey Teaser 1

Flaming black “C”, from the chest, you can also see a hint of yellow coming out of the C in the top right. This is the trim around the “Calgary” script logo

Flames Third Jersey Teaser 2

The mountain range with wheat, similar to shoulder patch logo but previously unseen in leaked images. Likely goes inside the inner-back-collar

Flames Third Jersey 3

Waist striping pattern – matches up exactly with the NHL14 images

Flames Third Jersey Teaser 4

Captain’s “C”, sorry folks, no mini-Flames logo to designate captain on this one. NOTE: Update/Corrected image below

UPDATE (Oct 16/13 – 12:24pm ET):

Update: Thanks to eagle-eyed reader Matthew Meehan we can see, in this screencap taken a half-second later, that this is actually the font for the player name on the nameplate. Note the placement of the shoulder yoke, absence of collar, and a hint of the beginning of the next letter in the name

Number font, white on black, simple stuff

Credit where credit is due, the new jersey leak was first tweeted to and reported by Icethetics courtesy a protected Twitter account, Icethetics also first discovered this video of the teaser. They did a fab job at getting this news out there, kudos.
