Tampa Bay Lightning alternate jersey remains the same

When we last saw the Tampa Bay Lightning's alternate uniforms, the blue-and-black ensemble that featured a blue, piped sweater with "BOLTS" scrawled across the front, its future was still to be determined. The Lightning organization hadn't made a decision on what would happen to the uniform or if it would be employed again.

A decision has been made though: The 3rd jersey lives on. Team Executive Vice President of Communications Bill Wickett said in an email on Monday that the team would indeed employ the uniform system again for 2012-13. Wickett expected the jersey to be used for "12-15 home games" this season. There will be one minor tweak to the uniform though; a more current shoulder patch will be employed. Last season's jersey continued to feature the Lightning's old (2007-2011) primary logo on its shoulders. It was a time issue that prevented making the change for last season.

The alternate jersey design debuted during the 2008-09 season, with the Lightning wearing it primarily at home during Saturday games.
