Spawn.com is proud to present the Edmonton Oilers third jersey, designed by Spawn creator (and part owner of the Oilers) Todd McFarlane in collaboration with (Edmonton-born) Brent Ashe of Todd McFarlane Productions.

    Almost three years in the making, the new Oilers jersey represents a proud step into the NHL third-jersey program and is a singular vision of both the team's past and future.

    Though the new logo is bold, dynamic and industrially modern, it's rooted in respect for the traditions of hockey's past. The new design's key element - the oil drop - is taken from the original Oilers logo. The five rivets encircling the oil drop represent the five Stanley Cups the team has won since its 1979 National Hockey League debut. The 10 gear teeth (five each on both the inner and outer rings) represent each of the Oilers' 10 team captains, who include such legends as Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier.

    The Oilers began an extensive advertising campaign several weeks ago, culminating in a press conference with Todd McFarlane, the Oilers' general manager, president and team captain on Friday, Oct. 26 in Edmonton to reveal the new jersey.

    The club will debut the new third jersey in a nationally televised game on "Hockey Night in Canada" vs. the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. Mountain Time.
