There have been talks for months that the Tampa Bay Lightning would soon be introducing a brand spanking new third jersey. Well, as we all know now, these have turned out to be much more than rumors.
Anyone who was in attendance today at the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Annual Fan Fest event were treated to something special.
In addition to all the fun activities that the organization had planned for everyone; which included interviews with people like Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and Lightning Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman, player practices, and so much more, attendees also got their very first look at the new third jersey.
The good news is, if you were one of the people who were unable to make the event for one reason or another, we here at Bolts By The Bay have you covered!
Here is a look at the brand new third jersey that the Tampa Bay Lightning will be wearing when they take the ice next season.

In case that’s not enough for you, here is a look at a video from the National Hockey League.
This is truly the start of a new era for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Since Jeff Vinik has taken over the reins of the organization, there have been many changes. We have a brand new million-dollar arena, a new logo, a number of new quality players, and more importantly…a new revitalized attitude.
Based on what we have seen thus far in the preseason, the brand new revitalized attitude is very much warranted. The team is playing with the fight and grit that we have been searching for a very long time to attain.
We don’t know about you, but we are pretty excited to see what the new season holds for us here in Hockey Paradise, new jersey and all.
